The French government will be represented in Qatar from the start of the competition. According to the Cabinet of Ministers of the Interior, the President of the Republic has decided to send Gérald Darmanin to the opening ceremony of the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Sunday, November 20, in Doha. This ceremony will precede the start of the first match of the tournament between the host country and Ecuador.

Thus, the Minister of the Interior will take part in the opening of the last major sporting event before the Rugby World Cup and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, which France will organize in 2023 and 2024 respectively. On this occasion, he will visit the French gendarmes and police stationed in Qatar to contribute to the security of this world event.

Gerald Darmanin will not be the only French statesman to travel to the Middle East during the World Cup. Emmanuel Macron announced that he would make the trip if the French team reached the semi-finals of the tournament and, if they won, the final. Sports and Olympic and Paralympic Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castera hopes to travel to Qatar “if the team moves forward.” “I still allow myself some flexibility, but yes, if we reach the quarter-final level at some point, this is an important step, and the role of the sports minister is to be close to the team,” she said. This was announced on November 10 on the radio Franceinfo.
