Thousands of football fans flocked to Katara on Tuesday evening to attend a special send-off event for the FIFA World Cup Trophy.
This was the culmination of a series of events organised by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) to mark 200 days to go until Qatar 2022 – which will get underway on 21 November. Attendees had the chance to have their photo taken with the FIFA World Cup Trophy and the opportunity to win tickets to the match between Qatar and Ecuador on the opening day of the tournament.
Fans enjoyed a range of activities, cultural performances, a spectacular stage show and appearances from a number of special guests, including Brazilian football legend Cafu, twice a winner of the FIFA World Cup.
Khalid Al Mawlawi, Deputy Director General of the SC, said: “The event at Katara was yet another memorable evening on the road to 2022.
Excitement continues to build across Qatar and the region as we edge ever closer to the tournament. It was a joy to see so many smiling faces during the final send-off event for the trophy as we countdown to the biggest sporting event ever to be held in the Middle East and Arab world.”
