With FIFA Club World Cup set for Qatar in February 2021 Doha, Qatar, FIFA and the Local Organizing Committee have announced that Ooredoo is reprising its role as a National Supporter for the tournament, which will again be held in Qatar.
The 2020 edition of the international football tournament is set to be held in Doha from 1-11 February 2021, with six top clubs from across the globe taking part.
Matches in the second FIFA Club World Cup Qatar™, presented by Alibaba Cloud, will take place at the Ahmad Bin Ali and Education City stadiums in Doha.
Ooredoo will be capitalising on its extensive experience with similar events to ensure fans enjoy an unrivalled experience in the stadiums.
The telecomms operator has been working tirelessly with its global expert partners to ensure that infrastructure at the stadiums is delivered on time, taking into consideration all safety measures imposed due to the pandemic.
Distribution antenna systems and the latest state-of-the-art 5G – with massive MiMO antenna systems and elastic cloud radio technologies – have been designed and deployed, and the event will be closely monitored on a real-time basis by a group of experts on-site and the Ooredoo Network Operations Centre to ensure seamless connectivity.
Fatima Sultan Al Kuwari, Chief Consumer Officer at Ooredoo, said: “We’re immensely proud to be working with FIFA again to bring the FIFA Club World Cup to Qatar. We have the ideal venues in which to host such a prestigious event, and the very latest in technology and innovation to ensure a phenomenal experience for all.
We’re looking forward to welcoming the teams, managers and support staff, and looking forward to an incredible event all round.”
Jean-Francois Pathy, Director Marketing Services at FIFA, said: “After a successful tournament in 2019, we’re delighted to have Ooredoo come back for the 2020 edition of the event.
“Their expertise is fundamental to the success of our tournament and we are very grateful to their commitment.
“The FIFA Club World Cup 2020 in Qatar will be a great opportunity to connect with local and traveling fans, and we look forward to another amazing event with Ooredoo by our side.”
