The Doha-headquartered leading Qatari international telecommunications company Ooredoo will provide fix-line mobile services for 2019 FIFA Club World Cup to be held in Qatar between December 11 and 21. Seven of the world’s top teams will take part in the soccer extravaganza to compete for the highest honor in global club football.

The fix-line mobile services will be provided to make certain that the three stadia boast top-level Internet and voice calling capabilities with leading-edge technology. The aim is to provide spectators an enriching experience. A deal struck has made Ooredoo the national supporter of the tournament presented by Alibaba Cloud.

Ooredoo as a company per se focuses on community welfare and believes in adding spark to people’s digital lives. It also believes that by making use of communications to the best extent possible it can act as a catalyst for human growth and help people to tap their potential to the fullest.

Waleed Al Sayed, Chief Executive at Ooredoo Qatar, said, “We are beyond proud to be working with FIFA to bring this incredible sporting event to Doha, consolidating yet again Qatar’s prominent position on the world sporting stage.”

“Promoting sport and a healthy, active lifestyle is a key priority for us as part of our corporate social responsibility strategy – as is supporting our local community – and teaming up with FIFA for this prestigious event is an honor for Ooredoo. We look forward to seeing some fantastic football from some of the world’s top players, and wish all the teams the best of luck,” Sayed further stated.

The event is a kind of curtain-raiser to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar which will be held in three Doha stadiums – the 15,000-capacity Jassim bin Hamad Stadium, the Khalifa International Stadium which can fit in 40,000 spectators, and the recently built Education City Stadium which can accommodate 45,450 supporters which will host the final match.

Adds FIFA Director of Marketing Services Jean-François Pathy, “Ooredoo has strong ties to football and sport in general, having supported a number of recent local sporting events. We’re thrilled that it will be bringing its expertise and enthusiasm to the FIFA Club World Cup. Companies like Ooredoo are essential for the successful delivery of the tournament.”

Stadium signage and branding within the proximity of the host venues will be supplied by The Look Company (TLC).
