Deadline for Qatar Media Portal registration is 30 October
SC’s digital platform will help global media cover the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™
Members of the media who are interested in covering the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ should register for the Qatar Media Portal (QMP) no later than 30 October.
Launched by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the innovative digital platform will give journalists, content creators and broadcasters access to a wide range of resources in order to help them operate at this year’s tournament, which will be held from 20 November to 18 December.
Available at https://media.qatar2022.qa/, the QMP will host exclusive Host Country content and facilitate a range of services, including interview requests with SC and government spokespeople, studio bookings and media tours.
The portal also provides a one-stop-shop for Hayya entry permits and filming/photography permits for all media representatives attending the tournament (both FIFA- and Host Country-Accredited), as well as Host Country media accreditation for non-FIFA Accredited media. Facilitation of hand-carry equipment clearance procedures (excluding drones) is also available via the new portal.
Registered users will also be granted access to Qatar’s Host Country video and photography archive, making it an ideal content resource for journalists attending the tournament in Qatar, as well as for those who do not travel but still wish to cover the tournament remotely.
Both Host Country-Accredited Media and FIFA-Accredited Media (following subsequent application approval) will be able to access the FIFA Fan Festival and other fan zones across the country. They will also have access to free public transport for the duration of the tournament.
Media representatives are encouraged to register for the portal as soon as possible and explore the various services on offer.
