On the 13th of July we'll know who the World Cup champion is going to be! There are many places that put effort to bring the ''World Cup mania'' to Qatar with unique decorations, food, equipment and more. The best place to see the World Cup this year would be at the ''Brazil 2014 Fan Zone'' at Katara organized by the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (2022 World Cup committee). The Fan Zone at Katara is not just celebrating one of the most exciting sports event in the world, but also to implement and test cooling technology which is part of the SC’s research and development efforts in the lead up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar. How's the cooling system working at the Fan Zone? You'd definitely need to go there and feel it yourself Wink
