German footballer Mesut Özil paid a visit to Aspetar on 1 September 2021, where he toured the hospital and learned about the cutting-edge facilities and services provided to elite athletes from a range of sports, and expressed his great admiration for Aspetars facilities.
Özil noted he was proud to see Qatar organizing the World Cup 2022 and expressed his great admiration for Aspetars facilities, commenting:
"It's the first time I'm seeing a concept like this. It's showing that it has been thought through from A to Z, which makes it unique and important for all the sports clubs. Such kinds of facilities should be available across the world. Usually in the clubs, in case of injury, the players are treated at specialized hospitals, if you have a knee injury you go to a specialized hospital, if you have a mental injury you go to a mental hospital, but here I see that Aspetar has everything under one roof, really, it's one of the best facilities I've ever seen."
Özil is in Doha for a private visit to the country that will host the first World Cup in the Middle East; and where Aspetar is one of the best centers for athlete care in the world, having adopted a comprehensive vision that makes it a global reference center in the field of sports medicine.
