Doha City

Doha is the capital of Qatar and also the capital of sport. Sport has been at the heart of Doha’s development into the vibrant, cosmopolitan city that it is today. Doha has successfully staged the FINA World Swimming Championships (25m) in 2014 as well as FINA Diving World Series 2009 and in 2017 the FINA Marathon Swim World Series (10km).

Qatar is a nation passionate about sport. His Highness the Emir of the State of Qatar, a member of the International Olympic Committee, understands the importance of sport in building a healthy and cohesive society. This is why Doha has emerged into a true global sports hub in recent years due to its state-of-the-art facilities, its successful hosting of a multitude of world-class sporting events and its central location perfectly bridging East and West.
