Get ready for the ultimate FIFA World Cup™ viewing experience in iconic destinations across the world – including our very own Dubai. The satellite event will complement the main FIFA Fan Festival™ in Doha’s Al Bidda Park in Qatar.
What Is The FIFA Fan Festival
In September, FIFA introduced a reimagined fan destination and on-site entertainment experience for fans called the FIFA Fan Festival. Beginning with the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 at Al Bidda Park in Doha, this multidimensional, inclusive event will provide new ways for fans to celebrate their shared passion for football while experiencing the very best in music, entertainment, local culture, food, games and lifestyle in a true festival environment. The six cities to host this year’s FIFA Fan Festival are London, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Seoul and Dubai.
