As per an article by Gulf Times on April 14, 2022, the Argentinian coach Lionel Scaloni had also confirmed the stay by expressing the following:
“The Argentina national team will stay at the Qatar University. We can sleep there and the training is very close. What really interests me is that we are in one place and we can train and sleep in the same place. Don’t need to grab a bus to go back and forth”.
The article further confirmed that the campus had been inspected by a delegation from Argentina early in the month of April, on the basis of which they were impressed by the facilities. The campus facilities include well-equipped outdoor fields, and a stadium built according to international standards which includes a football field, running track, and athletic sports area. Additionally, it has an Aquatic Centre, inclusive of three swimming pools; the Olympic pool, diving pool, and learning pool. Part of the facilities also includes a gym, along with a sauna and hot and cold Jacuzzi.
