The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 will have the highest capacity broadcast contribution network in the history of FIFA tournaments.

The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) has built a state oft the art fibre network system ahead of the World Cup to deliver the highest possible quality and speed for live broadcasts.

The International Broadcast Coordination Centre, which will send all the footage from the tournament to the rest of the world, is located next to Al Bayt Stadium, where both the opening and final matches will be played.

The fibre optic network will connect every stadium with the IBC and will be supported by traditional satellite broadcasting capabilities. This will ensure that media rights licensees are guaranteed an uninterrupted signal.

This is not the first time that Qatar has tested this network. In the end of 2021, the first phase of the high-speed fibre optic network was tested during the FIFA Arab Cup, which included matches at six tournament venues.

“What matters to us is for people around the world to take in all the action from the field of play and to learn more about Qatar and the region through the lens of the World Cup,” said Maryam Al Muftah, the SC’s Director of Digital Services & Innovation. “That’s why we wanted to deliver a higher network capacity than ever before.”
