FIFA President Gianni Infantino yesterday stressed the importance of Qatar’s hosting of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, saying FIFA and Qatar were keen to produce an exceptional edition at all levels.
Infantino said Qatar would be a home for the whole world within few weeks. Speaking at the closing session of the activities of the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH 2022), titled ‘Power of Sports’, Infantino said the world would see the most magnificent world cup edition from November 20, highlighting the great impact the organisation of the championship has already left on Qatar.
The world saw this after the Qatari national team won the AFC Asian Cup, he said, highlighting the great qualitative leap that Qatari football has achieved and the transformation of Doha into a capital of world sports.
The FIFA president thanked all officials in Qatar for implementing the vision and positive transformations to present the best World Cup edition, especially as it will be the largest football tournament organised after the near-disappearance of the Covid-19 pandemic. (QNA)
