FIFA Secretary General Fatma Samoura has said that what she found at Majlis Qatar, organised by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) on the sidelines of the World Cup 2018 in Russia, gave her a positive impression of Qatar's efforts to host the 2022 World Cup.
Samoura said on the sidelines of her visit to Majlis Qatar in Moscow on Thursday that the tour gave her an idea of what to expect after four years at Qatar World Cup.
She added that fans will have many surprises and wonderful things that will give the World Cup in Qatar a different taste. They will be able to move easily and watch more than one match per day for the first time in the history of the World Cup.
Samoura added that the organising committee of Qatar World Cup 2022 is not only seeking to host the best version of the World Cup, but also wants to highlight the culture of a region that is not very well known for football, stressing that what she found in Majlis Qatar as ideas highlighting the Qatari culture confirms that the World Cup will not be distinctive at the level of football only, but in all other aspects.
Earlier, Qatar announced the launch of a number of events in Moscow and St Petersburg for football fans in Russia attending the 2018 World Cup to learn more about the atmosphere in Doha and other Qatari cities.
