The Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC), in co-operation with the Doha Film Institute (DFI), announced that the two FIFA Club World Cup semi-final games will be broadcast on February 7-8 at the DFI’s drive-in cinema in Lusail.
The initiative provides fans with the opportunity to support their teams, and enjoy the excitement and enthusiasm of football, without violating social distancing or other coronavirus precautionary measures.
Highlighting Qatar’s cultural diversity, this initiative is also reflective of the country’s passion for sports in general and football in particular.
The drive-in cinema will broadcast the first semi-final between Brazilian Libertadores Cup champion Palmeiras and the Tigres UANL Concacaf’s Champions at 9 pm on February 7.
Europe’s champion Bayern Munich will play its first game against Africa’s Champions Al Ahly SC at 9 pm on February 8.
The drive-in cinema can accommodate 159 cars, and ticket prices range from QR120 to QR150.
In a press statement, QNTC chief operating officer Berthold Trenkel said: “We continue our successful partnership with the DFI to develop entertainment experiences for citizens and residents that contribute to domestic tourism while focusing on adhering to safety measures due to current circumstances."
DFI chief executive Fatma Hassan Alremaihi said: “Bringing audiences together at safe social distances, the open-air experience of drive-in cinemas is a perfect way to bring the excitement of the game to the community at a time when it's challenging for many to go to a game.
“A retro favorite, the drive-in during the pandemic is being reimagined across the world, giving us new ways to experience films, music, sports, and live performances."
