Doha 2030 Asian Games Bid Committee launches campaign

The Doha 2030 Asian Games Bid Committee today unveiled a dynamic bid logo and slogan, which together reflect Qatar’s combination of tradition and modernity and its commitment to hosting a magical Games with an enduring legacy for Asia. The official logo and slogan, “Your Gateway”, were revealed virtually today by QOC President and Doha 2030 Asian Games Bid Committee Chair, HE Sheikh Joaan Bin Hamad Bin Khalifa, alongside Qatari athletes and committee representatives.

“Our bid is born out of our strong belief that sport has the power to drive social change and foster peace and understanding. The unique role sport can play in keeping us connected and inspiring hope has been so clearly demonstrated this year during the global pandemic. It has only strengthened our determination to use Doha 2030 as a gateway to a brighter future for Qatar and the Asian Olympic family. “Building on the legacy of the Doha 2006 Asian Games, we want to deliver a sustainable, inspirational Games plan that provides certainty and an enduring legacy for Asian sport. We want to deliver an Asian Games that support development throughout the continent and provides a platform that connects all nations and celebrates our peaceful diversity.”

HE Sheikh Joaan Bin Hamad Al-Thani said:

At a time of great uncertainty, Qatar is ready to deliver the excellence Asia deserves in the sustainable, risk free way that it needs.” In the last 15 years alone, Qatar has hosted more than 500 major international sports events, conferences and training camps. Athletes and their teams would be able to benefit from this experience and the existing state-of-the-art competition venues and training facilities used at major sporting events, such as the IAAF 2019 World Athletics Championships and the FIFA 2022 World Cup. QOC Marketing & Communications Director Sheikha Asma Al-Thani added: “By understanding the challenges Asian NOCs are facing and identifying ways the Games can contribute to overcoming them, we can ensure that Doha 2030 is a gateway to a stronger future for Asia before and after 2030.
