Qatar Stars League Management holds meeting ahead of Clasico


As part of preparations for the ‘Qatar Clasico’ between Al Sadd and Al Rayyan on Friday, 27th October, the Qatar Stars League Management (QSLM) held a co-ordination meeting at its headquarters in Al Bidda Tower on Tuesday. The match will kick off at the Al Sadd Stadium at 19:30 on Friday, 27th October.

QSLM’s Acting Executive Director of Marketing and Communications Hassan Al Kuwari, Competitions Department Director Ahmed Al Adsani and representatives from the Stadium Security Department as well as Al Sadd and Al Rayyan clubs were among those who attended the meeting.

A number of important issues, like the need for teams and organisers to reach the stadium well in time, inviting the public to come early to avoid crowding, opening of gates to fans, dressing rooms, match list and early presence of club representatives at the gates, were discussed.

It was also decided that spectators should keep the match tickets with them while inside the venue and co-operate fully with the security personnel.

Gates 1 and 2 have been designated for families and school students, Gate 3 for VIPs and Gate 4 for mediapersons. Gates 4 and 5 are for Al Sadd fans while their Al Rayyan counterparts can use Gates 6, 7 and 8.

Al Sadd, being the host team, will be responsible for ticketing and distribution. A special event area, which will be open from 5pm on the match day, will feature a play arena and restaurants for fans who can enjoy the special activities before entering the stadium.
