This has been an incredible edition of the FIFA World Cup – and one that will set a benchmark for future mega event hosts.”
Al Thawadi added: “We are very proud to have hosted a compact, accessible and family-friendly FIFA World Cup. This tournament has provided a platform for cultural exchange on a level not seen before in history. Fans from far and wide experienced Qatari and Arab culture for the first time and were always in the thick of the action – never far from a stadium, accommodation or entertainment activation.
“The feedback we have had from all stakeholders, including fans, players, the media, volunteers and tournament officials, has been overwhelmingly positive. Smooth transport operations have made it easy to get around and everybody has immersed themselves in the party atmosphere across the country. We have no doubt this tournament will leave a huge legacy for the country and region – socially, economically and environmentally.”
