We are delighted that Ooredoo has returned, this time as a Regional Supporter, for these two amazing tournaments in Qatar. With Ooredoo by our side, we are looking forward to hosting memorable events that will connect followers of the beautiful game in Qatar and across the globe.

We are beyond proud to be working with FIFA again, this time as a key supporter of the biggest sporting event in the world and of the biggest football event in the region.

All eyes will be on Qatar in 2021 and 2022 as our country is propelled onto the global sporting stage. This is an opportunity for Ooredoo to cement our leadership in innovation and telecommunications; engage a regional audience; promote our country as a major sporting hub; and celebrate football, the most popular sport in the world.

Qatar boasts the infrastructure required to host sporting events of such a scale, and Ooredoo’s innovation, technology and experience enable delivery of the required network speeds and reliability.

We are honoured to be supporting our country in providing an unrivalled fan experience for all, and we look forward with great excitement to some incredible football.
