Doha, Qatar – 13 November 2022: Doha Festival City, Qatar's one and only choice for shopping, dining, and entertainment has partnered with Al-Daayen Municipality to support the landscaping and beautification of Al-Daayen Park in preparation for the most-anticipated football event to be held in Qatar next week.
Through this partnership, Doha Festival City will support the setup of the park, as well as with the park’s new branding, which will see it divided into four districts representing four countries participating in the tournament – Canada, Mexico, Switzerland, and Qatar.
With the joint efforts of Doha Festival City and Al-Daayen Municipality, the park is now divided into 3 general walkways, with each reflecting the culture and colors of a country participating in the football event of the year. The walkways connect in the middle in an area dedicated for Qatar, showcasing the host country’s traditions and colours. Each country’s area can be entered through a country-branded gate and is decorated with large flag-branded soccer balls that glow-in-the-dark.
Jihad Zarkout, Assistant General Manager of Bawabat Al Shamal Real Estate Company (Basrec) said: “We are pleased to be here today to inaugurate the rebranded park and celebrate our ongoing partnership with Al-Daayen Municipality. Through this partnership and collaboration, the community can now enjoy an outdoor space where they can truly experience the spirit of football.”
