The official emblem of the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019, to be played from December 11-21, was unveiled by the host country on Friday.

The official emblem embodies the pinnacle of global club football while highlighting the cultural history of Qatar. The emblem reimagines a football as a pearl, in recognition of one of the country’s earliest industries. The decoration of the iridescent sphere is inspired by mashrabiyas , traditional architectural elements found in residences across the Middle East.

Mashrabiya latticework – like pearl diving – has deep roots, with examples dating back to as early as the Middle Ages. The delicate screens are both decorative and functional, serving the dual purpose of cooling homes and providing an elegant decoration both inside and outside.

The colours featured in the emblem are the burgundy that is so characteristic of the Qatari nation and the deep turquoise of Doha Bay. The striking pearl is held aloft by shapes reminiscent of sweeping desert sand and accented with diacritics, a fundamental element of the Arabic alphabet.

The ticket sales will begin on October 22 and will be available to the general public at .
