Fan Entertainment Areas to offer family-friendly activities
There will be activities for the whole family at the Fan Entertainment Areas being organised especially for the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019™.
The entertainment areas will be located at both tournament venues: Jassim Bin Hamad Stadium and Khalifa International Stadium. They will open three hours before kick-off on each match day and feature food and beverage stalls, entertainment and a host of family-friendly activities.
