Players and staff of the Paris Saint-Germain Handball team arrived yesterday evening in Doha for the Qatar Handball Tour, their traditional pre-season training camp.
For the third consecutive year, the Parisian players and staff will set up camp at Aspire Zone—the state-of-the-art sports complex in Doha—and will be hosted by Qatar Tourism Authority (QTA) for a mix of physical preparation and tourism activities.
Each year, as part of its association with Paris Saint-Germain, QTA hosts the club’s various teams in Doha for training camps. Last April, the Paris Saint-Germain Women’s Team came to train in Qatar, the host of the last Men’s Handball World Championship.
“We are delighted to welcome back members of the Paris Saint-Germain Handball team following the global championship held in Doha last January, and hope the team members who are visiting for the first time will enjoy Qatar’s offerings, both as a world-class sports destination and a cultural hub,” commented Rashed Al Qurese, Chief Marketing and Promotions Officer at Qatar Tourism Authority.
