Education City to screen Qatar World Cup 2022 matches
Football fans from Qatar and around the world are being invited to watch the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ action unfold at Qatar Foundation’s Education City – as it hosts free family-friendly screenings of the tournament’s matches.
Throughout the four-week sporting showpiece, Education City – home to one of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ stadiums – will be open for everyone to enjoy a range of events and activities, and its popular green space Oxygen Park will house a big screen showing 22 games live, starting with four matches on Friday, 25 November and including next month’s semi-finals and final.
Qatar’s group games against Senegal (Friday, 25 November) and the Netherlands (Tuesday, 29 November) will be among the matches screened at Education City, with activities being provided for families to enjoy alongside the football, and food and beverage outlets available. Those attending the screenings do not need to have a Hayya card.
From 25 November, games will be shown at Oxygen Park on every matchday during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ except on days when the Education City Stadium is hosting games. The full schedule, and guidance on how to access Education City to watch the match screenings – with visitors being advised to use public transport – can be found here.
During the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, through its campaign It’s Only Football if it’s For All, Qatar Foundation (QF) will be offering an array of festivals, activations, and fun for the local, regional, and global community at Education City, all designed with accessibility in mind. These include the second edition of QF’s D’reesha Performing Arts Festival, which takes place from 11-17 December at Oxygen Park under the theme of Travel and Adventure and will showcase the richness and vibrancy of Arab culture to the world. More details of the lineup of FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ activities at Education City can be found at QF's website.
QF will also be providing an inclusive, accessible welcome to every supporter attending matches at the Education City Stadium over the coming weeks through the Education City fan experience, which will feature performances including singing, dancing, and freestyle football, with artists with disabilities among the performers.
The fan experience reflects QF’s commitment to accessibility by including a range of sensory activations, rest benches with wheelchair access, and support for fans with limited mobility, while a team of QF-trained accessibility volunteers who are part of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ volunteering force will be on hand to help.
