Sensory viewing room allows children with sensory requirements to enjoy FIFA Arab Cup™ matches 0

While thousands of fans enjoyed a carnival atmosphere in the stands during the FIFA Arab Cup™ match between Tunisia and Oman at Education City Stadium, a number of supporters took in the game from the venue’s sensory viewing room, which provides a calm and secure environment for people with sensory access requirements.

 

The sensory room, which is located in one of the stadium’s sky boxes, offers visitors the chance to watch live football in a specially-lit space that aims to alleviate any anxiety they may feel while attending a large-scale event. The purpose of the room is to offer people an enjoyable match day experience in a location that feels safe and secure. It features soft furnishings, toys and other activities which were installed by the Qatar Institute for Speech and Hearing.

 

The sensory viewing room, which was set up by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) in collaboration with the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 LLC and FIFA – and with support from Qatar Foundation (QF) – caters mainly for children and young adults with autism or learning difficulties, among other sensory access requirements. Sensory rooms were previously set up at two other FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ stadiums: Khalifa International and Al Janoub – but Education City houses the first permanent facility of this type.
