Fan Leaders Wanted for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™

Wednesday 10 Mar 2021
The Three Lions begin their bid for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Qualification this month

While we have a major tournament to be excited about this summer, our attention is also focused on FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 with England playing three matches this month to begin the bid for qualification.

The organising body are working with all potential participating nations on an exciting project that will bring together the ‘Fan Leaders’ from each country.  The goal is to ensure that the voice of the supporters is clearly heard in the planning for the 2022 World Cup and supporters of all competing teams are invited before the qualification round has concluded.

We are looking for approximately 15-20 supporters, who are members of the current England Supporters Travel Club, to become our ‘Fan Leaders’.

As a Fan Leader you will become part of a community of fans from around the world that will be working towards delivering an amazing World Cup for the supporters in 2022.  You will get to meet likeminded people through the fan engagement network and have exclusive access to bespoke content that you can own and share.

There will be opportunities for some Fan Leaders to travel to Qatar for football events or international football tournaments in advance of the World Cup - to learn more about the host country’s culture and traditions and see first-hand the progress and preparations for the tournament in 2022.
