As reported by Wego, the FIFA Council has officially approved Qatar’s bid to host the next three editions of the Arab Cup. Building on the resounding success of the 2021 edition, Qatar is now poised to open its doors to the Arab footballing community in 2025, 2029, and 2033.


In an official statement released on FIFA’s website, the Council endorsed the Qatar Football Association’s (QFA) request to host the Arab Cup again. The decision also stipulates that the tournaments will continue to be scheduled in December, in line with the traditional timing observed in previous editions.

The QFA’s bid to host the event is part of a larger ambition to enhance football activities in the Arab region. This ambition is backed by Qatar’s strong infrastructure and a proven track record in organizing international sporting events. The nation’s hosting credentials have been highlighted by successful events such as the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 and the recent Asian Cup Qatar 2023, along with other significant tournaments like the U-23 AFC Asian Cup.

Earlier, FIFA had selected Qatar to host five editions of the FIFA U-17 World Cup from 2025 to 2029, which will feature 48 teams for the first time. This decision further cements Qatar’s status as a premier global football destination. With its modern transportation network and comprehensive sports infrastructure, Qatar aims to provide an unparalleled experience for fans, enabling easy access to multiple matches per day.
