Qatar interested in hosting 2032 Olympic Games


The Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) has formally asked to join the conversation to host the Olympics in 2032.





The International Olympic Committee (IOC) received an official request by letter at its headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

QOC President HE Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani said:

“Never before has an Olympic Games been held in the Middle East. The Olympic rings are a symbol of peace, unity and hope for people around the world, including the people of our region.

“For many years, sport has been a major contributor to our nation’s development. From athletics to cycling, gymnastics to football, tennis to volleyball, Qatar has earned the reputation of a world-class destination for major sporting events. It is this proven track-record and wealth of experience, along with our desire to use sport to promote peace and cultural exchange, that will form the basis of our discussions with the commission.”



Qatar has developed its sporting venues and infrastructure as it gets ready to host the FIFA 2022 World Cup.
