Here's How Dubai is Set to Welcome FIFA Fans

The Dubai Events Security Committee (ESC) recently met with the Dubai Sports Council and other government and private entities to review the city's readiness to welcome fans during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

"The meeting reviewed the readiness of all stakeholders in Dubai to welcome fans and facilitate their travel to and from Doha on match days with the aim of contributing to the success of the region’s first football World Cup," said Major General Abdullah Ali Al Ghaithi, Director of Dubai Police’s General Department of Organisation Protective Security and Emergency, and Chairman of ESC.

"We also reviewed the measures deployed by Dubai Police to secure the dedicated fan zones being set up across the city," he added.

Meanwhile, Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism (DET) briefed ESC members on November’s eventful agenda, coinciding with the World Cup.

The tournament will kick off on November 20, with the title decider scheduled for December 18.

A dedicated football park and several fan zones will be set up to offer residents and visitors a safe and enjoyable experience of watching the matches.
