Qatar - Fan ID made optional for FIFA Arab Cup as SC completes first phase of Hayya Card project


(MENAFN- The Peninsula) #Arab Cup 2021 QNA

Doha: The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has announced that the first phase of the Hay'ya Card (Fan ID) project to attend the FIFA Arab Cup 2021 matches has been completed.

From now on it will be optional for fans to use the Hay'ya Card at FIFA Arab Cup matches. For the remainder of the tournament, fans will only need to show a ticket to enter a stadium, along with a gold frame EHTERAZ as proof of vaccination (or proof of a negative test for children aged 12 and under).

The SC thanked all fans and national stakeholders for their support in delivering the opening stage of this project.

The SC's Technology and Innovation Executive Director Sami Al Shammari said: 'The first phase has ended after 16 matches which is exactly half the number of games in the tournament.'

Al Shammari continued: 'The data and feedback we have gathered will enable us to fully review the entire Fan ID process as we continue preparations for next year's FIFA World Cup.'

'A large number of Hayya Card holders used the device to access free public transport and this benefit will continue for the remainder of the tournament,' he added.

International fans should apply for their entry permit to the State of Qatar by using the Hay'ya Card platform.
