With 300 days to go before the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 begins, Qatar will welcome a series of international sporting events, thereby continuing tourism drive.
Qatar has plenty to offer for visitors seeking adventure and looking for a professional sporting action, with events such as ATP tennis competition, European Tour golf and the MotoGP.
The Chief Operating Officer at Qatar Tourism, Berthold Trenkel said “Sport brings people together and hosting international sporting events allows us to be part of and to facilitate, cross-cultural moments of human achievement and utility. The country’s ability to host these events demonstrates the trust in Qatar’s ability and health and safety measures to keep players safe when competing at world-class venues. We look forward to welcoming outstanding players, management teams, and ofcourse, all the fans to Qatar throughout the year.”
As a nation, Qatar gives priority to sports, and is one of the few countries t celebrate a National Sports Day as a bank holiday. This year it falls on 8th February.
For visitors seeking to participate in, as well as watch the action, Qatar Tourism has curated a Sport and Adventure package, together with 365 Adventures, to offer sport enthusiasts three-days of exciting activities.
