As part of the marketing for World Cup 2022, FIFA is working on the documentary in collaboration with Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy. We had an opportunity to be featured in a segment talking about Al Thumama stadium and its designer Mr. Ibrahim M. Jaidah.
The filming consisted of a rounded story depicting the journey from the inspiration to reality. The first filming location was Souq Waqif, where Mr. Jaidah reminisced looking at hundreds of gahfiyas to gain an inspiration for Al Thumama stadium design. The second location was our Lusail office, and the final location was Al Thumama stadium, where live game between Lebanon and Egypt was played as part of FIFA 2021 Arab Cup.
It was a pleasure to have participated in such large project where production and crew came from all over the world. We are looking forward to seeing the final product and sharing the film with our community.
