With just 100 days until the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, Match Hospitality reports that sales for the Official Hospitality program at the forthcoming tournament are still rising at record rates.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, which established the record for the most hospitality packages sold to date for a sporting event, has resulted in revenue that is currently 29% more than that realized at the same time last year.

Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom (UK), and Argentina are now the countries with the biggest number of hospitality packages acquired for the forthcoming tournament, according to Match Hospitality's 2022 sales data.

European markets are also showing a lot of interest, with the UK, Switzerland, France, and Spain exhibiting the highest levels of curiosity and purchasing activity. Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates are the three countries in the Middle East with the fastest revenue growth rates, and 38% of all hospitality packages have been bought in the local (Qatar) market to date.

Three countries that have never sent a team to a FIFA World Cup are also among the "top 10" countries purchasing hospitality packages: Bangladesh, India, and Hong Kong. This is another indication of how popular the FIFA World Cup is in developing countries.

From the sociable and laid-back Match Club to the more opulent and private Match Pearl Lounge, Match Hospitality is getting ready to offer five top-notch hospitality offerings in Qatar.

Match anticipates accrediting around 25,000 service personnel for the tournament, including 9,000 in the catering industry and 1,000 welcome personnel from 35 different countries.

A genuinely memorable experience will be provided throughout the FIFA World Cup, according to the exclusive rights holder of the FIFA hospitality program.

Match Hospitality has a clear message for local and regional customers: order now to prevent disappointment as hospitality packages are quickly selling out.

"We are overjoyed by the enthusiastic reception and tremendous interest the world has shown in the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, both locally and internationally. The market is aware of how spectacular this edition of the FIFA World Cup will be - filled with world firsts, in a country geared toward impeccable service, we see this as a sign that people are eager to return to sporting events of this scale after the pandemic," Match Hospitality executive chairman Jaime Byrom said in a press release.

32 countries have qualified for the historic tournament, and they will compete in eight cutting-edge stadiums in Qatar. The tournament, which will begin on November 20 and last through December 18, promises to feature the best football players in the world against a stunning setting of top-notch hospitality offered by Match Hospitality.
