Containment Manager

Federations & Major Events
Doha , Qatar
Full Time
13 / 03

FIFA and the Qatar LOC have created a new Joint Venture which will be responsible for the operational delivery of the FIFA World Cup 2022™.

The Qatar 2022 World Cup containment project will gather, coordinate and reconcile needs for cable routes and service paths, from all relevant stakeholders – in order to plan, design and deliver an efficient network of shared pathways on FIFA official sites.

It will necessarily be a joint project between Q22 and the Host Country, with involvement and oversight by FIFA Technical Services.


The Containment Manager will work within the team responsible for specification and successful operation of technical services and overlay at stadiums and other official sites of the FIFA World Cup 2022, and alongside the host country organisers who hold budgetary and contracting responsibility for all infrastructure and overlay, including containment.


FIFA official sites under the responsibility of this role include: stadiums, training sites, the International Broadcast Centre, the Main Media Centre, outdoor production facilities, centralised facilities for volunteers / ticketing and others, major draws, official hotels, HQ’s, and other tournament-critical non-competition sites as required.


Upon completion of the containment project (shortly before the tournament), the Containment Manager will be redeployed into a site-based technical role for the duration of the Tournament.
