Harnessing the power of football, Qatar Airways and Qatar Duty Free are joining forces as the Official Partners for the ‘Match for Hope’ charity football match.

The event will feature some of the world’s legendary footballers and content creators in a thrilling game on February 23.

The two competing teams will be led by MENA’s most followed content creators AboFlah, and Chunkz. The football legends include the World Cup participants Kaka, Roberto Carlos, Eden Hazard, Didier Drogba and David Villa, as well as Paris Saint-Germain’s Claude Makélélé.

The Match for Hope event aims to raise vital awareness and funds for a better future for out-of-school children around the world. It is organised by Q Life, the cultural platform under the State of Qatar’s International Media Office, in collaboration with Education Above All (EAA), and Qatar Football Association. Qatar Airways, Qatar Duty Free and Visit Qatar are the official partners of this philanthropic match.

As a key player in Qatar’s sports industry, Qatar Duty Free’s support strengthens its commitment to championing initiatives that highlight the unifying power of sport. All proceeds raised will be donated to EAA projects in Mali, Pakistan, Palestine, Rwanda, Sudan and Tanzania for constructing classrooms, providing academic materials, connecting families to social programmes, teacher mentorship trainings, and more.

The Education Above All Foundation is a global foundation established in 2012 by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. EAA aims to transform lives through education and create the right conditions to achieve Sustainable Development Goals for disadvantaged children and communities.
