Football has been a much loved sport in the Middle East region, hence the enthusiasm for the event started fairly early much before the pandemic. However, with the pandemic almost away, and as restrictions ease and borders open, the traffic to the Middle East and Qatar in general will definitely pick up towards the latter part of the year.

The 28 days of sporting extravaganza, bringing in players and tourists from across the world to Doha in Qatar, will be one of the most historical events post pandemic. Berthold Trenkel, Chief Operating Officer, Qatar Tourism, said: “With sports fans from around the world travelling over for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, we are working to ensure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable trip to remember. Among the measures to accommodate fans are new hotels, desert camps, holiday homes and the highly anticipated floating hotels on cruise ships. When visitors arrive they will find our state-of-the-art metro line offers a quick and affordable way to navigate the capital and explore the sights. The sophisticated, modern city of Doha is home to large green parks, iconic museums, rooftop skyscraper restaurants, ornate shopping malls and the historical Souq Waqif. Surrounded by the warm and tranquil waters of the Arabian Gulf, we also have over 20 spectacular sandy beaches and rolling sand dunes to explore. With a wave of new events, restaurants, leisure centres, beaches and more, there is lots to do outside of watching the matches for everyone at all budgets.”
