World Cup hospitality opens up to England fans

England football fans can now book their seats for this year’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar through ticket-inclusive hospitality packages from MATCH Hospitality.

The sports hospitality company, which has eight offices around the world, is responsible for the FIFA Hospitality Programme and offers different levels of hospitality packages for the World Cup.

‘MATCH Club’ is for those who prefer a social and family-friendly atmosphere, while those who would like to enjoy a touch of glamour can opt for the ‘Pearl Lounge’. Other options include the ‘MATCH Pavillion’ and ‘MATCH Business Seat’ packages.

Hospitality clients can also enjoy food and beverages, interactive displays, guest appearance and entertainment, as well as the more practical priority access, parking and commemorative gifts.

This year’s World Cup in Qatar will be the first time the competition has been held in the Middle East and Arab world.

Attendees will be able to explore all Qatar has to offer, including its revered hospitality and service, which will mix a blend of traditional and modern aspects. Visitors will also have the opportunity to include memorable experiences such as exploring the bazaars or focusing on couture shopping, followed by a dinner at a number of restaurants.

The tournament is also the first to be held in such a compact area, with the furthest distance between two stadiums being just 75km. It is also the first time the World Cup has been held in the winter, with the opening match taking place on November 21 and the final scheduled for December 18.

Fans can also personalise their packages, which can include accommodation and flights, due to MATCH Hospitality’s partnership with the nation’s flagship airline, Qatar Airways.

Jaime Byrom, executive chairman of MATCH Hospitality, said: “We are thrilled to be able to help passionate England fans follow their national side to Qatar. MATCH Hospitality has put together a fantastic set of products for this exciting event, and we invite the fans to write themselves into this story.

“The England team has always been a serious contender for the top title, and perhaps in 2022 they will improve on the 2018 semi-finals performance and take it all the way.”

With tickets recently being made available for fans across the globe to apply for, some 1.2 million were applied for in less than 24 hours.
