Name change for Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee

Leading group to be known as Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy

The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee will now be known as the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy.

His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of the State of Qatar, issued the decree, which included restructuring the board of directors, which he chairs.

"The formation of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy and the restructuring of the Board, as part of the Emiri Decree, aim to create the best conditions to host the world's greatest sporting event, to catalyse development across all sectors in the State and to solidify the emphasis the government is placing on legacy for the 2022 FIFA World Cup," said Hassan Al Thawadi, Secretary General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy.

Until now the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee has undertaken the operational preparations for the tournament, which are the mandate of the Local Organising Committee (LOC). The newly activated LOC will be working closely with FIFA to fulfil all obligations under the hosting agreement.

With 2014 being a significant year for the delivery of stadium and infrastructure projects in Qatar, it is a natural juncture to separate the roles of delivery and legacy from the tournament operations and hosting experience for fans and players during the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy will focus on constructing proposed tournament venues and projects, coordinating with local stakeholders and ensuring a lasting legacy far beyond the World Cup, in line with Qatar National Vision 2030. All existing contracts with the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee will be automatically transferred to the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy.

"This year is an important one for us as we begin to see five stadiums in different stages of construction in Qatar. The activation of the LOC is a further key milestone for us," said Hassan Al Thawadi, secretary general of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy. "As we focus on delivery and the legacy of venues, the LOC will be working closely with FIFA, as well as undertaking all event planning, operational planning and making sure that all commitments in relation to the hosting agreement are fulfilled."
