The team has representatives of 34 different nationalities, including 200 volunteers who participated for the first time among the volunteers of the Supreme Committee.
Nasser Al-Mughaisib, Director of the Volunteer Strategy Department at the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, said that last week’s matches were considered a major milestone in the constant preparations for organizing the tournament in Qatar at the end of this year.
He also pointed out that this upcoming tournament will provide an ideal opportunity to test the operational plans for hosting the 2022 World Cup in Qatar next year.
Al-Mughaisib expressed his gratitude to all the members of the volunteer team at the Supreme Committee. For their huge efforts and hard work over the whole week. This led to the success of hosting the qualifiers.
Rawya Ahmed, the volunteer, and supervisor of the team leaders in the fan services said, “the organizing process was great. The team worked hard since day one. Participating in organizing matches was an interesting experience which added a lot to our knowledge.”
She added, “I was very happy to do this voluntary activity on the side of my usual work. I cannot describe the enthusiasm I felt in all the team members throughout the week of the tournaments.”
The Local Organizing Committee organized online training activities before the start of the Qualifying tournaments.
In addition, it held training sessions that focused on the roles assigned to each volunteer in the stadium they will be in. This will prepare them to perform their tasks successfully. Each volunteer worked at least two eight-hour shifts.
