G7 nations address preparations for 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar
Ambassadors met with Abdulaziz Abdullah Al-Ansari to review the security procedures being implemented ahead of 2020 World Cup Qatar.
Ambassadors from all of the G7 countries: Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, the United Kingdom and the United States, met with Abdulaziz Abdullah Al-Ansari, president of the Security Committee of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 to discuss preparations which are currently either in place or in progress for the showpiece event, the first World Cup to be played in the Middle East.
Safety and security, paramount at Qatar 2022
Qatar are eager to ensure that the 2022 World Cup will be an exceptional occasion, and for that reason, a great deal of attention has been paid to the security of the event; one example is the organisation of training courses for the security staff and stewards who will be on duty during the event.
It was an opportunity to listen to some of the countries who have hosted previous editions of the World Cup and learn from their experiences - especially issues such as ensuring security of facilities, fans and transport. Their advice was invaluable and will surely help to enhance the security measures which are being established to meet the requirements of a major tournament like the World Cup.

While Qatar has previous experience of organising major sporting events and all of the relevant security procedures, safety and security at the 2022 World Cup will be something which organisers have first-hand knowledge and experiences of. More than one million guests from around the world are expected to attend the World Cup, so it is imperative that security efforts are in place to make sure that all visitors are safe, while allowing fans to move freely between venues during the tournament.
Within the framework of preparations for Qatar 2022 and arrangements for the arrival of guests attending the World Cup, the first session in a nine-month course geared towards gaining a formal safety certificate (the International Diploma in Stadium Security and Sports Fans’ Safety) took place at the start of the month. The course is being supervised by the Rehabilitation Unit and Training for the 2022 World Cup Safety Committee.
