The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has signed an agreement with The Associated Press (AP) to deliver the country’s host country broadcast and media facilities to broadcasters, non-rights holders and non-accredited media during the 28-day World Cup later this year.

The agreement was signed by SC Secretary General Hassan Al Thawadi and the President and CEO of AP Daisy Veerasingham.

AP Global Media Services, the news agency’s production arm, will help Qatar deliver a seamless experience for broadcast media by providing a one-stop shop for innovative services and facilities. Services will include broadcast studios, broadcast equipment rental, workforce and technical support, logistical support, work areas and common areas.

In addition, AP will operate broadcast studios in key locations throughout Doha. Broadcast platforms provided will include a mix of multi-camera and single-camera studios, and be within close proximity of the Host Country Media Centre (HCMC), located in the capital’s Msheireb Downtown Doha district.

The Souq Waqif live broadcast platform offers a traditional marketplace backdrop, overlooking the main plaza where large crowds of fans are anticipated to gather. The second live location will be situated at Doha’s renowned Corniche waterfront promenade, with spectacular views of Doha’s futuristic skyline and where large crowds are also expected to gather, given Qatar’s extensive fan experience plans.

The SC has also partnered with Al Kass Sports Channels, a prominent Qatari broadcaster, who will provide facilities to further support media during the tournament.
