A celebration of football, good food to munch on, games to participate in and the chance to win tickets to Spain? Bring it on. This year is doubtlessly the year for festivals in Qatar. We just bid a tearful goodbye to QIFF and just before we wipe those tears off, the LaLiga Lounge Festival heads our way.
Doha-ites love football and everything to do with it, no secret there. The festival will open its doors on Wednesday April 4 and will run until Saturday April 7 from 5pm to midnight.
The festival will bring in the best football talents who will compete to win the title of the year, and if that isn’t enough, there’ll also be sports outlets, restaurants, entertainment and competitions like the 4x4 football competition, one-on-one panna cage, VR games and talent evaluations. The little ones can have fun at the mini-football for kids.
Additionally, two lucky winners will get the opportunity to fly all the way to Spain where they can enjoy real football thrills (please be us, please be us).
LaLiga Lounge Festival is expected to bring in huge crowds, at least around 35,000 families and football fanatics. The event will be held at Doha’s Hotel Park and will constitute three football pitches for the 4x4 games and two pitches for the one-on-one and video games.
Watch this space for updates on a meet and greet with LaLiga stars.
Free. Apr 4-7, 5pm-midnight. Hotel Park Doha, Al Corniche Street (5597 8387).
