Message From The Secretary General

Our bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ told the world to "Expect Amazing". The task of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy is to "Deliver Amazing". Our organisation leads the development of infrastructure that will be critical to Qatar’s hosting of an exceptional FIFA World Cup™ that creates a lasting legacy for our nation, region and the world. 

To deliver on the promises we made during our bid, we have assembled a diverse team from across the globe, with more than 40 nationalities represented. This talented and creative team has come together to work on one of the most exciting projects in the world. Not only are we entrusted with delivering the infrastructure for the FIFA World Cup™; we are one of the many Qatari organisations acting as catalysts and working together to achieve the ambitious goals of the Qatar National Vision 2030.

We have a difficult task ahead, but we are not acting alone. Our stakeholders are working diligently, and we are focused on building support in Qatar and across the Middle East. We will use this opportunity to transform perceptions of our region and bridge cultural divides.

Qatar has already made significant progress, and we are working hard every day to maintain our momentum. In the time period that has passed since FIFA awarded our nation the hosting rights, we have committed time to ensuring that strong foundations are in place for our journey towards 2022. We are confident that the early progress we have made leaves us in an excellent position to deliver on the promises we made to the international football community during our successful bid. 

Qatar and the Middle East will Deliver Amazing – for the players, for the fans and for the world.

H.E. Hassan Al Thawadi
Secretary General
