SC launches 'Host a Fan' initiative to welcome visiting supporters during upcoming major tournaments

By QLSports

The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has announced the launch of its Host a Fan initiative, enabling households across the country to volunteer to host visiting supporters during upcoming sporting events. An expression of the Arab world’s famed hospitality, the first-of-a-kind program will link supporters traveling to Qatar for major tournaments with locals and residents.

“The Host a Fan initiative is part of the SC’s strategy to provide fans visiting Qatar with a variety of culturally rich accommodation options. This unique approach will not only allow fans to stay in one place throughout the tournament but will also enable them to experience Qatar’s culture through the eyes of a local,” said Khalid Al-Jumaily, Project Manager of the initiative at the SC. 

“Participants in the initiative, many of whom might be visiting Qatar for the first time, will be able to see what the country has to offer in an immersive manner, and will leave with memories that will reach beyond the excitement of what happens on the field of play,” added Al-Jumaily.

Al-Jumaily stressed that participation will be limited only to hosts and fans who are fully vaccinated, in line with Qatar’s Ministry of Public Health’s regulations to limit the spread of COVID-19, and the initiative is completely free of charge. Visiting fans will not be required to pay for their accommodation, nor will hosts be paid for hosting a fan. Hosts, however, will be able to choose where fans will stay, and how long their visit will be. Most importantly, hosts will act as cultural guides, showing their guests Qatar’s most significant cultural destinations, and introducing them to local customs and traditions.

Those interested in learning more about the specific requirements of the initiative can visit hostafan.qa. Registration for hosts will be open from 25 September to 12 October 2021.
