Serves hot drinks and sweets to the fans… An initiative in Qatar that shows hospitality to the World Cup fans
During the Arab World Cup last year, Qatari Nabil Abdullah Al-Shibh noticed that the fans, after the matches that took place in Al-Thumama stadium near his home, went out with a state of fatigue and exhaustion as a result of cheering throughout the match, but the time at that time did not allow him to provide his services to these fans.
But with the start of the Qatar World Cup 2022, he agreed with his family members to work to relieve the fatigue and exhaustion that appears on the fans on their way to their home after the end of the World Cup matches, so he thought of offering drinks and some Qatari sweets to the fans.
And from the first match hosted by Al-Thumama Stadium, Al-Shaybah came out with his family members, carrying bottles of water, sweets and some snacks in their hands, in order to present them to the fans, who were surprised by this matter, especially since most of them are foreigners who are not used to such actions in their countries.
With the passage of time, Nabil Al-Shaybah’s council has become a center for all the youth of Al-Fareej, the “neighborhood”, who wish to serve the fans of the World Cup. With Al-Thumama stadium hosting any match, the youth of the neighborhood begin to gather near his council and bring what they present to the fans in a banner that reflects the hospitality of Qatar, the Gulf and Arab countries in general.
