Case Study | Qatar World Cup 2022

Read more below about why engaging with Matterhorn will give you maximum peace of mind and ensure duty of care for your employees and travelling guests.


Make your stay as enjoyable and memorable as possible

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar presents new and varied challenges for organisations and individuals ensuring they stay safe and secure during their visit.

Never before has the competition been held in one city, or in a country as small as Qatar. Over the period of the event itself, Qatar’s population will effectively double with all the associated strain on infrastructure this entails.

Whether you are in the midst of planning, touching down at Hamad International Airport, or managing the day-to-day requirements of delegates in Qatar; Matterhorn can provide practical information and support for your planning and visit needs.

‘Unlike previous tournaments, all of the matches in the 2022 World Cup are to be held within a 30-mile radius of one city. This means virtually all the fans for the competing nations will be staying in Doha, the capital. This is unprecedented, and potentially a catalyst for trouble.’
