Case Study | Qatar World Cup 2022

Read below about how Matterhorn’s World Cup operations gave our clients complete peace of mind during the competition.


Ensuring our clients experience was enjoyable and memorable as possible

The 2022 World Cup in Qatar presented new and varied challenges for organisations and individuals to ensure they stayed safe and secure during their visit.

Never before had 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  effectively doubled creating extra strain on Qatar’s infrastructure.

Matterhorn provided all the necessary practical information and support our clients required for their visit.

‘Unlike previous tournaments, all of the matches in the 2022 World Cup were held within a 30-mile radius of one city. This meant virtually all the fans for the competing nations stayed in Doha, the capital. This was unprecedented.
