FIFA, global soccer’s governing body, has announced the renewal of its long-term partnership with Doha-based airline Qatar Airways until 2030.

The national carrier will continue to serve as FIFA's global airline partner.

As part of the deal, Qatar Airways will engage with fans at tournaments and through various digital platforms, giving fans access to exclusive travel packages including match tickets, flights, and accommodation for select FIFA tournaments through a dedicated Qatar Airways platform.

The agreement covers several FIFA tournaments including the 2026 and 2030 men's World Cups, the 2027 Women's World Cup, and all youth men's and women's tournaments, having started with the ongoing Under-17 World Cup in Indonesia.

The original partnership began in May 2017.

Qatar Airways is one of six global FIFA partners alongside adidas, Coca-Cola, Hyundai, Wanda, and Visa
