About Qatar

Leisure and Sports

Doha, the capital city, is home to an impressive number of world-class sporting facilities, malls, mosques, art and cultural centers, hotels and other tourist attractions.

Qatar made sports history in 2010 when it became the first Middle Eastern and Arab country to win the bid to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022. Already a passionate nation for sports – having hosted many international tournaments over the years, including the 15th Asian Games in 2006 – Qatar will completely transform itself once again to welcome the world's greatest sporting event in 2022.
