Qatar FIFA World Cup Opening Ceremony: A Blend of Arab Tradition and Modern Technology


Doha, November 20 (SO News/Agency) Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar announced the opening of FIFA World Cup 2022 after a wonderful combination of both Arabic culture and modern technology. In the presence of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, FIFA President Gianni Infantino and Emir Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar, South Korean singer Jeon Jungkook rocked the crowd with his performance. Football fans gathered at the Al Bait Stadium in Qatar to witness the opening ceremony of the FIFA World Cup 2022. There were huge fireworks displays and the lighting was presented in a very modern way.

Qatar has proved that ‘where there’s a will there’s a way’ by hosting the FIFA World Cup 2022. He overcame all the hurdles of allegations and organized the most expensive and best FIFA World Cup. There were times when hosting the World Cup in an Arab country looked bleak, but Qatar handled everything very coolly.

When former president of the Qatar Football Association and former president of the Asian Football Confederation, Mohammed Bin Hammam, was banned for allegedly bribing FIFA executive members, it seemed that the World Cup would not be held in the Arab country. But the Qatari authorities have never looked back on their mission to host the World Cup.

The Corona Pandemic was a source of worry for the Qatari government but luckily the pandemic died on its own after claiming so many lives that it proved to be a relief for the Qatari authorities. Although there were many issues ranging from labor to women’s rights, LGBT and alcoholism, Qatar focused on commemorating the World Cup without giving any answers.

Qatar, who never qualified for the World Cup or even crossed the Asian Cup quarter-final stage barrier until 2019, performed brilliantly in the 2019 Asian Cup where they defeated the mighty Saudi Arabia, Japan, Iraq And won by defeating the Republic of Korea.

People from all over the world have arrived or are arriving in Qatar to watch the thrilling game of football and enjoy the Arabian hospitality. Despite the fact that only 32 countries participate in the World Cup, football fever has gripped the entire world. In the group matches, England will face the Asian team Iran tomorrow and the Netherlands will face the African team Senegal.
