Qatar successfully appealed against their suspension, with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruling in their favour on 12 March 2014.

The provisional hosts were originally South Africa who withdrew due to financial problems and were replaced by Qatar. Australia also expressed an interest in hosting the event but later withdrew due to concerns over player safety in hot conditions. Brazil were also rumoured as a possible host but this never came to fruition.
