DOHA, November 27, 2021

beIN Media Group (beIN) said it has acquired the rights to broadcast the Fifa Arab Cup Qatar 2021 in 24 countries across the Middle East and North Africa.
Coverage of all 32 matches from the 16-nation tournament being hosted in Qatar will be broadcast live on beIN Sports in Arabic and English. It all gets underway on Tuesday (November 30), with the final taking place on December 18, a year to the day from when the World Cup Qatar 2022 final will take place. 
This is the first time the Arab Cup 2021 is taking place under the Fifa banner, with Arab nations from both the AFC and CAF confederations participating in this showpiece tournament ahead of next year’s big event.
In all, there have been nine previous editions of the competition formally known as the Arab Nations Cup, which was last played in 2012.
beIN Sports is one of Fifa’s established broadcast partners globally across men’s and women’s football and is the official broadcaster of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 next year in 25 countries, spanning France and Mena.
On the deal, beIN Mena CEO Mohammad Al Subaie said: "As we gear up for arguably the biggest year in beIN’s history when we broadcast the Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022 in Mena and France next year, we’re delighted to be bringing another showpiece event to our viewers across the 24 countries in the region."
"This tournament will bring together 16 top regional nations in celebration of football and different cultures across the Arab world. It’s an event that will excite fans across the region and we look forward to bringing our viewers all the passion, colour, actions, and emotions directly to their screens and devices over the coming weeks," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
