During the tour, the delegates experienced first-hand the process of staging football matches and learned about the different disciplines and factors involved in operating sports venues and events.


Doha: Josoor Institute, a centre of excellence for the sports and events industries, inspired and developed by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), successfully completed the fourth block of its flagship certificate and diploma programmes on “Major Events Management” and “Football and Sports Management”.
The fourth block of the 18 months, long-term programmes was delivered recently at the Qatar National Convention Centre. The certificate and diploma programmes consist of six blocks and are designed and delivered in partnership with Georgetown University, University of Liverpool and Leeds Beckett University. The programmes are part of Josoor Institute’s ongoing commitment to building sustainable sports and events industries in Qatar and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region by developing human capital.
Commenting on the progress of the programmes over the past year, Mushtaq Al Waeli, Executive Director (Acting) of Josoor Institute, said: “With the completion of the fourth block of these programmes, we move closer to realising our vision of producing a generation of pioneers that will develop, grow and transform the sports and events industries in the MENA region.” 
He further stated: “The programmes have on board delegates from leading organisations in Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia among which are the SC, Aspire Academy, Qatar Olympic Committee, Qatar Football Association, Ministry of Interior, Saudi Professional League and Oman Football Association. These delegates have now been with us for over a year and we are able to witness a continuous development in them as they go back to their organisations and apply the learnings from the programmes.” 
The learnings of this block were focused on strategic marketing and communications, event production and law, and venue and event management.The Peninsula
