At the Supreme
Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), we go beyond simply ensuring that
people working on our projects have safe working and living conditions. We
recognise that working in Qatar must involve out-of-work activities, social inclusion
and workers being recognised for their efforts.
Here are just some of the events and initiatives we have organised as part of our workers’ welfare outreach work.
Many of our
workers are as passionate about football as we are. The Workers' Cup is their chance to compete in a professionally planned
tournament, co-hosted by the Qatar
Stars League (QSL), the final of
which is played in front of thousands at a QSL club ground. Many of the
watching fans are the workers’ colleagues and the atmosphere at Workers' Cup
games is always lively.
Barwa Workers Recreation Complex
In partnership with Qatar Foundation and the SC, Barwa Real Estate Company built a recreation complex as part of accommodation for 53,000 workers in Al Khor, the site of Al Bayt Stadium. The SC sponsors the recreation facility’s football pitches, which can be reserved by workers who wish to arrange casual games or more competitive tournaments. The SC sponsorship keeps the pitches – made from FIFA-certified artificial grass – in good condition.
Football Fun Day
In 2016, to
celebrate International Labour Day, the SC organised a football-themed
event for hundreds of workers. Those attending
enjoyed free food and drinks, music, competitions, football skills demonstrations,
and novelties like bubble football. For workers, it was a chance to relax and
socialise away from work. For us, it was a chance to show our appreciation to
the thousands of people helping us build towards 2022.
