Qatar Airways, the world’s first 5-star airline, has offered free regional tickets to lucky fans at the Qatar Sports Club who take a selfie in the stadium or in the fun-filled zone. To take part in this incredible competition, spectators must use the hashtag #BeyondIncredible when they post their selfie. The tickets are for all destinations across the region, and the competition will be held every two days. The first lucky winner was selected on the 23rd October and other winners will be selected on the 25th, 27th, and 29th October.

Sponsors Ooreedoo have also started their in-stadium competition, with a daily chance for audiences to win an iPhone 6, iPad and Samsung S6 by catching a ball catapulted into the audience by a sling shot. Yesterday’s winners included long jump silver medalist Roland Hertog from the Netherlands.
