Hosting a mega event like World Cup requires a great investment and excellent project management skills from any hosting government. Large and complex projects, especially highways and bridges, are unique in that their construction ventures of many other utilities and disciplines, and they tend to affect large residential, industrial or commercial areas. As such, they influence, and get influenced by project management. Project Managers who do not interact attentively with the environment of their projects are likely to face difficulties during planning and execution of their projects. This is further emphasized when projects are large and complex by nature. Qatar’s hosting 2022 World Cup is in no exception. Social and environmental impact to the host country of mega events like the World Cup has been studied extensively. Our research concluded in this paper is to analyze that a large percentage of the delays, difficulties and cost overruns are attributed to risks and the absence of poor project management strategies. For the success of projects, a structured project management methodology needs to be followed by project managers.
