The State of Qatar signed today a bilateral agreement (2018-2020) of technical co-operation with the Council of Europe, in the framework of the European Convention on Integrated Safety, Security and Service Approach at Football Matches and Other Sports events (CETS No. 218), known as "St Denis Convention".

The project aims at supporting Qatar to fulfil standards relative to safety, security and service in order to accede to the Convention and at the same time to assist the country to prepare for hosting important events, such as the IAAF Athletics World Championships in 2019 in Doha and the FIFA World Cup in 2022.

Council of Europe standards and best practices in this field will be essential for this capacity-building action consisting of fact finding visits, comparative analysis of legal frameworks, information seminars and workshops strengthening safety management, international police co-operation and dialogue with supporters. The budget allocated is of 600,000 EUR.

Council of Europe Deputy Secretary General Gabriella Battaini-Dragoni and Qatar Representative to the Council of Europe, Brigadier Ibrahim Al Mohannadi, on behalf of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), signed the agreement in the ceremony organised at the Palais de l'Europe in Strasbourg.
