Qatar Airways to host FC Barcelona and Al-Ahli Saudi FC in Doha
Qatar Airways will unite two football giants – Europe’s FC Barcelona and Al-Ahli Saudi FC – for a friendly match in Doha. The football giants, both sponsored by Qatar Airways, will play a friendly match in Thani Bin Jassim Stadium (Al-Gharrafa Stadium) on Tuesday, 13 December, 2016.
The announcement is certain to attract a large number of fans from both clubs, especially from nearby Kingdom of Saudi Arabia-based Al-Ahli club, who are eager to witness this unique match of champions.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We are proud to bring together two champions of football to play in Doha, to showcase not only their athletic excellence but also Doha’s extraordinary sports infrastructure.
“Our relationship with FC Barcelona began in 2013, and since then we have doubled the frequency of our flights to Barcelona and Madrid. During our Al-Ahli sponsorship, we have increased our services to Jeddah and Madinah. Fans of both teams can travel to Doha for the match in December, or travel directly to the clubs’ home ground for matches, with more flight options making their journeys easier.”
Qatar Airways encourages football fans to stay tuned to its social media channels for information on how to buy tickets.
