FIFA presented a re-imagined fan destination and on-site entertainment experience for fans at future FIFA World Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup events called the FIFA Fan Festival.
In the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, this multidimensional, inclusive event will provide new ways for fans to celebrate their shared passion for football and experience the best in music, entertainment, local culture, food, games and lifestyle trends in a true festival environment.
Formerly known as the FIFA Fan Fest, this one-stop destination for fans previously appeared at four editions of the FIFA World Cup – starting with the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany – and welcomed almost 40 million visitors across five continents.
Following its debut in its new form in Qatar later this year, the FIFA Fan Festival will premiere at the FIFA Women’s World Cup at the tournament in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand in 2023.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino said, “The FIFA Fan Festival provides an incredible opportunity for fans to come together beyond the stadiums and the on-pitch action and experience football in new and unique ways. We are truly excited about the future of the FIFA Fan Festival and the enhanced entertainment offerings that will bring fans and partners alike closer to both men’s and women’s FIFA World Cups, as well as global football culture.”
