Might be problematic for fans of course. The heat is immense. I'd be more worried about them then the footballers.
Have heard from reliable sources (architects that were involved in bidding) that the engineers that said they could air condition the stadiums are now backing down from that claim, and they won't be able to. (in Qatar)
