Immediately after winning the bid to host the event, Qatar prepared to make a new mark in the world of sports, this time on the continental level of Asia which constitutes the largest continent in terms of human resources.

Qatar renewed commitment to fulfilling the promises it made to the Olympic Council of Asia, when it submitted the bid to host Doha 2030, stating that the tournament enjoys great support from the wise leadership to achieve the required success to promote Qatar's global position by supporting sport that bring people together, removing barriers between peoples of the world, where competition and sportsmanship prevail.
