FIFA has revealed QatarEnergy as an official partner which joins the line-up of companies supporting the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
The liquified natural gas provider becomes the second Qatar-based company to become a FIFA partner, as all global partnership positions for the tournament have now been allocated.
President of the governing body, Gianni Infantino, commented: “QatarEnergy is joining FIFA in this important FIFA World Cup year, and we are delighted to welcome them, as they share our excitement and enthusiasm for this first FIFA World Cup organised in the Arab world.
“This year’s tournament will expand football’s reach and shine a light on the region, bringing different cultures from across the globe together in Qatar to enjoy the best football in the world in stunning state-of-the-art venues.”
However, one regional supporter package remains available in the Middle East and Africa market, leaving a last opportunity for a company based in Qatar or the wider Gulf region to be associated with the World Cup.
“QatarEnergy is pleased to partner with FIFA again, this time in support of the iconic FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Qatar and the Middle East for the first time ever,” added His Excellency Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President and CEO of QatarEnergy.
“This partnership is a reflection of our continued support of various sports activities, and of football in particular as the central attraction of the sporting world. We look forward to a very successful competition and to being part of the effort to welcome the world to Qatar.”
Last week, FIFA also announced Crypto.com as an official sponsor of the upcoming competition, as well as the exclusive cryptocurrency trading platform, which will see the enterprise gain ‘significant’ branding exposure both within and outside of stadiums.
The FIFA World Cup 2022 is set to be held from 21 November until 18 December 2022 across eight stadiums.
