With his impeccable ability to speak in different accents, Hamad is the perfect choice for the event.

On his part, Hamad Al Amari stated, “I am thrilled to be a part of Qatar’s biggest sports festival, which will showcase the world our capability to host events of such a stature in the most organized and spectacular fashion. The FIFA Fan Festival is the heart of the tournament, and it’s my privilege to be a part of such a magnum opus tournament, which the world has been waiting with bated breath. Football is where I felt accepted for the first time in my life. Liverpool FC is my family. Spending the tournament with fans from around the world is an incredible opportunity to showcase Qatar’s culture and traditions, along with our sense of fun and humor.”
“We are confident that the FIFA Fan Festival™ will provide fans with an unforgettable experience. They will unite at Al Bidda Park, with the beautiful West Bay skyline as the backdrop, to enjoy wonderful weather, great music and excellent food. It would unite fans from all over the world in a celebration of love and life through football. I’m looking forward to welcoming fans from across the world as we watch the most intense football matches the world has ever seen and enjoy a host of activities,” added Al Amari.
