2022 FIFA World Cup to Pave Way for Kish Island Sports Tourism Development & Prosperity

Kish Island, July 28, 2021- Qatari officials will travel to Kish Island to visit its "economic, tourism and sports" facilities.

According to the Public Relations and International Affairs Department of Kish Free Zone Organization, 2022 Qatar World Cup Coordination and Follow-up Workshop was held on Monday, July 26, to plan the visit of high-ranking Qatari officials to Kish Island on its sports and tourism capacities.

Introducing the sports and tourism capacities of Kish Island as a destination for holding training camps during the visit of Qatari officials to this region can encourage and attract 2022 Qatar World Cup tourists and participants.

Kish and Qatar's similar weather conditions, along with adequate transportation facilities and tourist accommodation of Kish island, as well as issuing airport visas and providing quality and cheap services, are among the prominent features of Kish Island. These features can facilitate hosting team fans and sports tourists during this important event.

2022 Qatar World Cup can be a valuable opportunity for other Iranian free zones, too. By preparing and conducting branding studies on Kish Island, this region can be among the islands known to tourists worldwide.

Kish Free Zone tourism industry is an important priority, and sports tourism is also the best tourism index for the country.
