The gleaming FIFA Arab Cup™ Trophy has touched down in Qatar. The trophy, which has a solid gold base and features Arabic calligraphy and a map of the Arab world, was unveiled during a special event held at the Hamad International Airport in Doha, Qatar.

‘Qatar 2022’ stated that Qatar will host the FIFA Arab Cup™ Trophy Experience between now and the start of the tournament. The trophy will be visiting a host of attractions across the country, including the Aspire Park, Souq Waqif, Katara, the Mall of Qatar, Doha Festival City, and Msheireb Downtown Doha. The trophy will also visit a number of schools and businesses.

The 2021 FIFA Arab Cup™ is scheduled to be the 10th edition of the Arab world’s national team football tournament. It will be the first edition with the FIFA Arab Cup™ branding.

‘Qatar 2022’ further stated that the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™ will begin on November 30th and will feature 16 national teams from across the Arab world. Matches will be played at six FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ stadiums. The tournament is seen as a golden opportunity to finetune preparations for Qatar 2022 – which will kick off on November 21st next year.

Said FIFA’s Marketing Director, Jean-François Pathy, “This unique trophy speaks to the special nature of this tournament. All FIFA trophies are exceptional and embody the values of the event they represent – and the FIFA Arab Cup™ trophy in particular has a deep connection to the event and the region where it will be awarded. It is a stunning piece that will further inspire and excite the Qatari public in the run-up to the kick-off.”

Enthused Fatma Al Nuaimi, Communications Executive Director at the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, “Excitement is building across Qatar and the region for the FIFA Arab Cup™. We are delighted the trophy has arrived and look forward to showcasing this special prize at schools and tourist attractions across the country.
