London, 25 January 2023 - World Soccer magazine has recognised Secretary General of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, Hassan Al Thawadi as People of the Year for the feats accomplished in the World Cup, according to Al Kass.

The English publication credits Al Thawadi for his efforts in developing a tournament like no other while battling the criticism of several forces.

“Rare indeed are the men and women who fight a hosting bid battle and remain standing, heading up the event’s organisation and operation, when mission and thankless hard work has paid off,” World Soccer wrote.

“Such a man is Hassan Al Thawadi, the Liverpool supporter who studied in Scunthorpe and Sheffield, who worked up Qatar’s bid for the World Cup, then oversaw the event’s creation and activation while batting away relentless western criticism and was still standing at the final,” the English publication added.
