The Qatari Ambassador to Turkey Mohamed bin Nasser bin Jassim Al Thani has called on Turkish football fans to visit his country for the upcoming Turkish Super Cup final in Doha.

“We are very glad to host the Turkish Super Cup between Besiktas and Antalyaspor as this huge event comes amid Qatar’s active hosting of many important sporting events and tournaments,” said Al Thani in an interview with Anadolu Agency (AA).

Defending Turkish Süper Lig champion Besiktas and Turkish Cup winner Antalyaspor will vie to win the Turkish Super Cup at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium on Jan. 5.

Al Thani said the event highlights another field of collaboration and cooperation between Qatar and Turkey.

Hosting the prestigious Turkish event comes after the Gulf country successfully organized the FIFA Arab Cup, where Algeria lifted the trophy by beating Tunisia 2-0 in the final.

The 2021 FIFA Arab Cup was held in Qatar from Nov. 30 to Dec. 18, becoming the first edition of the tournament under FIFA's jurisdiction.

“Qatar managed to organize an impressive tournament during the Arab Cup. We saw it as a successful experience for the World Cup in 2022, given the huge preparations we made in this regard,” Al Thani said.

Al Thani said FIFA’s approval of the Arab Cup as an official tournament under its umbrella proves nothing but “Doha’s success.”

“What we noticed during the Arab Cup is that the sport brings people together and closer. It also end differences among peoples thanks to the distinguished moments they spend during the competition.

“This goal comes in line with the regional and international role Qatar is known for,” he said.
