African legend and Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup ambassador Samuel Eto’o and a delegation from the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy are visiting Ghana.
The visit – to engage in dialogues with football federations, supporters and media – is part of a three-nation tour involving Senegal and his native Cameroon – the sub-Saharan African countries participating in the Fifa World Cup in Qatar.
Eto’o and his entourage are expected in Accra for two days from Thursday, August 18, 2022.
This fan tour presents an opportunity to engage the passionate, vibrant African fans, who have been steadfast in their support of Qatar and celebrate the uniqueness of the First Arab World Cup.
Samuel Eto’o is a well-known, well-respected continental hero and a former player, his presence celebrates Africa, African teams and their fans and creates a narrative linking Africa to the tournament and Qatar as host.
For many teams and fans, it is the first time they will have played in Qatar, therefore we seek to relay information about the country and the unique experience they will have during the tournament.
Local fans and media representatives will be able to get the most up-to-date information about the unique Qatar 2022 hosting concept, tournament readiness, accommodation, Hayya (fan ID), fan experience and other relevant topics.
While in Ghana, Samuel Eto’o and the Supreme Committee delegation will call on the President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku on Friday, August 19 in Accra to discuss issues of mutual benefit. He will be on the Morning show of Peace FM with Kwame Sefa Kayi.
