Qatar-UAE Super Cup & UAE-Qatar Super Shield

Neighbouring nations compete in a football double-header marking a new chapter in regional sport.

This April saw a spectacle of unity and sport and the strengthening of relationships between Qatar and the UAE with not one but two football matches, played out between four of the leading clubs from both nations. On 12 April, Qatar’s Amir Cup champions, Al Arabi, faced off against the UAE’s President’s Cup winners, Sharjah, for the Qatar-UAE Super Cup in Doha. The excitement didn’t end there, as the following day the UAE-Qatar Super Shield saw 2023 ADNOC Pro League champions, Shabab Al Ahli, go head-to-head with 2023 Qatar Stars League winners, Al Duhail, in Dubai.

As the official organising committee geared up for the first match at Doha’s Al Thumama Stadium, they turned to Qvision to bring their vision to life, tasking the event production and management company with a scope that encompassed the opening ceremony show, the pre-match ceremony concept, the match infotainment, and the coronation ceremony.

For the opening ceremony show, Qvision’s Artistic Director and Executive Producer, Sharif Hashisho, devised a spectacular laser display, highlighting the development of football in the GCC and the significance of the newly established championship, narrated by celebrity BeIN Sports network commentator Yousef Saif and featuring a carefully curated soundtrack.
