Doha, November 01 (QNA) – Representatives from a number of expat communities in Qatar paid a visit to Khalifa International Stadium, one of the developed and sustainable stadiums nominated to host World Cup 2022.
Most of the 31 communities who had signed the memorandum of understanding with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) to support the first ever FIFA World Cup in the Middle East region and the second in Asia took part in the visit. The stadium had hosted two editions of the Gulf Cup of Nations and the Asian games.
The stadium, which had received a four-star sustainability rating earlier this year, the community representatives were briefed by experts at the SC’s Tournament Operations and Planning department on the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Resident community leaders from Belgium, Ghana, Jordan and Switzerland signed the MoU earlier this year, with 27 representatives of 27 nationalities having signed in November 2015. (QNA)
