SC, MADLSA sign MoU to host visitors during FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022

By QLNews

As Qatar accelerates toward hosting an "unforgettable FIFA World Cup" in 2022, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor & Social Affairs (MADLSA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to provide accommodation options for visitors set to arrive in the country for the most-awaited event.

The MoU also seeks to offer investment opportunities to property owners in Qatar who may want to host visitors during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. 

The Minister of MADLSA, His Excellency Yousuf Bin Mohammed Al Othman Fakhroo, and SC Secretary General, HE Hassan Al Thawadi initialed the agreement, in the presence of representatives from both entities.

Al Othman Fakhroo said the agreement would create opportunities for the private sector to support the delivery of the World Cup.

"The MoU will contribute to maintaining the national economic stability after the tournament and benefit investors in Qatar," said Al Othman Fakhroo.

"Both parties will collaborate closely to ensure the housing provided supports the delivery of an exceptional fan experience in 2022," he added.

Al Thawadi said the agreement will help Qatar provide sustainable accommodation solutions for fans during the World Cup, eliminating the need to build additional hotels and residential units, thereby avoiding any white elephants.

He also highlighted the MoU’s potential to boost Qatar’s economy and provide an impetus to the private sector in the lead-up to 2022 and beyond.

"One of our main objectives is to utilize the existing accommodation for fans when we host the biggest football event in the world in 2022," said Al Thawadi.

"This agreement with MADLSA will help us to fulfill our goal of providing accommodation options to suit all budgets. We will work closely [with] MADLSA to carefully evaluate the properties to ensure they are suitable for the many visitors we are expecting during the tournament."

Under the MoU, owners will be able to lease their properties to MADLSA for a period of five years.

The five-year leases are renewable subject to terms and conditions.

The SC and MADLSA will be responsible for evaluating the proposed properties and selecting those appropriate, according to SC’s accommodation standards.
