After an intense month of surprises and iconic performances, the world’s most popular football event just came to a stunning conclusion. For Qatar, this was a special edition primarily because it was the final one before the country marks history, as the first Middle Eastern nation to host the tournament.

Prior to and during the tournament, Vodafone Qatar played an active role in providing customers with tailor-made solutions that ensure a hassle-free, engaging, and interactive experience.

Starting with the expansion of its highly popular Passport Pack to over 80 countries including Russia, Vodafone Qatar provided customers with 1GB of data and 100 minutes of roaming calls for only QR 100 per week. Not only that, but customers with the Bill Manager service were able to enjoy the benefits of Vodafone Passport Pack as soon as they landed in Russia.

Football enthusiasts were also able to actively participate in the tournament, thanks to Vodafone Qatar’s customized offerings which relied heavily on digital platforms including the My Vodafone App, Social Media and the company’s own website. The converged digital services provider announced a series of exciting activities and offers, all which focused on the importance of digital platforms for today’s modern fans.

These activities and offers included:
