The meeting focused on cooperation relations between Qatar and FIFA and looked into ways of boosting them further.

The most recent developments pertaining to Qatar’s hosting of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 were also discussed during the meeting.

Recently, the FIFA Chief commented that the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will be played in stadiums full of fans.

“I am very, very confident (it) will be incredible, will have the same magic, uniting the world,” he had said, adding “We will be back to where we have to be.”

The football world body president has on several occasions expressed his absolute confidence in Qatar’s abilities to deliver an exceptional World Cup in 2022.

The FIFA president said that the tournament will be exceptional and we will discover a part of the world that we did not all know, stressing that he is fully convinced that the stadiums would be full of fans.
