Sixteen of the Arab world’s top national teams are set to meet in Qatar for the first pan-Arab tournament to be held under the FIFA umbrella. The FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™ will not only showcase the region’s passion for the beautiful game, but it will also serve as a vital opportunity to test operations and facilities ahead of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™.
Being held a year before the first FIFA World Cup™ in the Middle East and Arab world takes place, the FIFA Arab Cup will see 32 matches played over 19 days from 30 November to 18 December. Six Qatar 2022 venues will stage the competition, including Al Bayt Stadium and Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, which will both be inaugurated on the opening matchday.
The final of the FIFA Arab Cup will take place exactly a year before the FIFA World Cup final – on 18 December, Qatar National Day, which is a public holiday.
