The FIFA World Cup 2022 has been being held in Qatar following doubts and criticisms surrounding the mega-event. It is the first time the world’s biggest football tournament held in a Middle Eastern country. Apart from the success of the mega-event, Qatar has the ambition to project its foreign policy through the FIFA World Cup driven by its National Vision 2030. This paper describes the sustainability sides of Qatar’s FIFA World Cup and the tiny country’s foreign policy to achieve human, social, economic, and environmental development. Hosting the FIFA World Cup provides opportunities for the nation to gain knowledge and technology transfer in terms of sustainable infrastructures and global mega-sport management, promote the values and cultures of Qatari society, enhance economic diversification, and embolden its international role in promoting and championing sustainable development and all of which correspond to the development emphasized on its National Vision 2030.
