Need to keepy-uppy with all the local info?
During the FIFA World Cup 2022™ some areas may be busier than usual, including those near the stadiums, the FIFA Fan Festival™ and the many attractions and events across the country.

Central Doha

Spanning from West Bay down to Souq Waqif, the city’s coastal area will be a central hub for fans during the tournament.

We encourage everyone to use Doha’s well-connected public transport network due to road diversions and restrictions during tournament time.
