FIFA extends global partnership with Qatar Airways until 2030
FIFA, the global governing body for football, has recently declared the extension of its enduring collaboration with Doha-based airline Qatar Airways through to 2030.
Maintaining its role as FIFA’s official global airline partner, Qatar Airways will actively connect with fans during tournaments and across various digital platforms. This engagement will grant fans exclusive access to tailor-made travel packages, encompassing match tickets, flights and accommodations for specific FIFA events, all facilitated through a dedicated platform provided by Qatar Airways.
The renewed agreement spans across numerous FIFA tournaments, including the men’s World Cups in 2026 and 2030, the Women’s World Cup in 2027, and all youth men’s and women’s tournaments. The collaboration initiated with the ongoing Under-17 World Cup in Indonesia.
The partnership, which originated in May 2017, underscores Qatar Airways’ commitment to enhancing the overall fan experience and global reach of FIFA events.
Qatar Airways stands among the esteemed group of six global FIFA partners, sharing the spotlight with industry leaders such as adidas, Coca-Cola, Hyundai, Wanda and Visa.
In a noteworthy development, Qatar Airways has also inked a significant deal with Serie A powerhouse Inter Milan, solidifying its presence in top-tier European football.
The airline continues to demonstrate its robust support for football, being a prominent sponsor of Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain and previously holding a sleeve sponsorship with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, a partnership that concluded due to fan-driven considerations.
