Amazing Delivered: How Qatar staged the ‘best World Cup ever’

SC publishes new report examining FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ legacy

DOHA, 28 January 2024: The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has published a new report recounting the extraordinary journey of hosting the greatest FIFA World Cup™ of all time.

In Amazing Delivered, the SC offers a new insight into the vision, innovation and determination behind what FIFA President Gianni Infantino called, “the best World Cup ever.”

From the origins of the original bid to host the first FIFA World Cup™ in the Middle East and Arab world, to the unforgettable final that saw Lionel Messi’s Argentina triumph over defending champions France, the report examines every aspect of the event’s sporting, social and economic legacy.

Amazing Delivered highlights the passion and commitment needed to stage a mega-event of this scale, while looking ahead to the next chapter of Qatar’s story as it builds on that moment of history.

Reflecting on the report, Eng. Yasir Al Jamal, Director General of the SC, said: “In March 2009, we set out to deliver amazing. Today, as we release our post -tournament report, we can proudly say Qatar did exactly that. Qatar 2022 will go down in history as the greatest FIFA World Cup yet. We are proud that Qatar set a new benchmark for hosting mega sporting events, and that we delivered on our promise.”
