Zurich, 28 October 2022 -  FIFA President Gianni Infantino said that the FIFA World Cup 2022 will bring people together for one month and help dispel some of the misconceptions that still exist about the Middle East.

Speaking by video to the sixth edition of the Future Investment Initiative (FII6) in Riyadh, he said “This FIFA World Cup 2022 is already having a huge impact on the Middle East,” he said, adding that the tournament, which starts on 20 November and ends on December 18 would provide millions of people with the chance to discover a new part of the world.

“It is also an opportunity for Qatar and the whole Gulf region to present itself to the world in another light and get rid, once and for all, of some of the prejudice that sadly exists,” he said. “It will definitely help to get more mutual understanding between people of different cultures and backgrounds, I am convinced of that.”
