FIFA staffing and facilities

Visitors and Qatari residents had access to a range of facilities, including health clinics, across the stadiums, fan zones, fan festivals and fan accommodation in place at the tournament.  

Qatar’s transport infrastructure provided fast and efficient options for both residents and visitors. Fans used buses, the metro, light rail transit systems and taxis to travel to the stadiums on match days.
