At the conclusion of the sports extravaganza, Ooredoo—the Official Middle East and Africa Telecommunications Operator of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM—announced record-breaking numbers, solidifying its position as a global leader in telecommunications and ICT.
The tournament’s thrilling final between Argentina and France at Lusail Stadium saw a record-breaking 45.1TB data consumed, 8.4TB of stadium Wi-Fi used, more than 650,000 calls made, and 32,000 people using roaming. Records set at the opening ceremony were broken by the time the tournament was over.
Sheikh Nasser Bin Hamad Bin Nasser Al Thani, Chief Commercial Officer at Ooredoo said: “There are no words to describe the pride we feel as we conclude the world’s greatest sporting event. To have hosted such an incredible event in our beloved country, and for our country to have put on such a stellar performance, was phenomenal; for Ooredoo to have had the opportunity to show the world just what we and our Network of Champions can do, was priceless. The atmosphere in Doha has been nothing short of spectacular across the past few weeks, and this has been matched within Ooredoo; as each record was set and then broken, and each day we saw just what an incredible experience football fans were able to enjoy thanks to the efforts of each and every Ooredoo team member.”
