In yet another 5G milestone, Vodafone Qatar has expanded its 5G network to cover Al Rayyan Stadium, paving the way for a truly incredible experience for fans during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and for all other local and international sporting events to take place in the stadium.

The country will get its first glimpse of the visually stunning 40,000-capacity venue this Friday, 18 December, when the stadium plays host to the Amir Cup match between Al Sadd and Al Arabi. Spectators can capture the event’s highlights via their 5G smartphones powered by Vodafone Qatar’s incredibly fast 5G network.

Al Rayyan Stadium is the third Qatar 2022 stadium to be covered with Vodafone GigaNet 5G, following Al Janoub and Education City.

As Qatar’s 2022 World Cup preparations accelerate, so will fans expectation for super-fast connectivity. The ability to share videos, pictures and messages with people online will be an important aspect of the fan experience and with more than a million people expected to travel to the Middle East’s first World Cup, the level of connectivity and sharing will be exceptional.

The incredibly fast speeds and ultra-low latency that 5G technology delivers will enable fans to stay seamlessly connected during the tournament. This will form a large part of delivering an unforgettable experience for those inside the 2022 venues.

Vodafone Qatar is fully prepared to deliver this experience not only in the stadiums but across the country. Since the company switched on its 5G network two years ago, Vodafone’s 5G network has rapidly expanded to now cover 75% of Doha and other key areas outside the capital.
