Education City Gift Shop Football Design Competition

Get into the spirit of 2022 by designing a football that shows what the game means to you!



The Education City Gift Shop seeks to introduce Qatar Foundation to the local community and international visitors by creating fun merchandise and providing a space to relax and hangout. The Gift Shop also serves as a platform for local artists and creators to express themselves and share stories about Education City and Qatari culture at large. As the entire nation gears up to host the World Cup in 2022, we wanted to showcase what football means to people in our community. We’re inviting you to submit original football designs for a chance to see them come to life.

Why participate?


Express what football means to you

More than just a game, football can evoke powerful emotions and memories for people all over the world. This is your opportunity to design a football that represents you and your connection to the sport.

Be recognized as a designer

Footballs based on the winning design will be produced by our partners at Alive and Kicking and sold at the Education City Gift Shop. The creator of the design will be given credit for their work, with their name being featured on the packaging and promotional materials. The football will also be displayed at QF’s visitor center, garnerning attention to your work from numerous high-profile guests, international delegations, and members of the local public being introduced to Education City.

A memento to remember the world cup

The creator of the winning design will receive five units of the football they helped conceive. These can be kept as personal mementos or be given as gifts to friends and family.

Access QF’s recreational facilities and classes

The winner will be awarded three months of membership to access QF’s recreation and sports facilities. In addition, the winner will also get free registration for one class of their choice.

Be invited to a meet and greet

The winner would be invited to a meet and greet event with a local football player, who will be revealed at a later stage.
