Qatar yesterday launched its campaign for the 2030 Asian Games, a bid process set to see it go head-to-head with bitter rival Saudi Arabia.
Sheikh Joaan Bin Hamad Bin Khalifa, President of the Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC) and the head of Doha 2030, unveiled a bid logo and slogan.
It is claimed they both "reflect Qatar's combination of tradition and modernity and its commitment to hosting a magical Games with an enduring legacy for Asia".
Sheikh Joaan revealed the logo, which was reflected on to the Qatar National Museum tonight, and slogan, "Your Gateway", during a ceremony held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Our bid is born out of our strong belief that sport has the power to drive social change and foster peace and understanding," he said.
"The unique role sport can play in keeping us connected and inspiring hope has been so clearly demonstrated this year during the global pandemic.
"It has only strengthened our determination to use Doha 2030 as a gateway to a brighter future for Qatar and the Asian Olympic family.
"Building on the legacy of the Doha 2006 Asian Games, we want to deliver a sustainable, inspirational Games plan that provides certainty and an enduring legacy for Asian sport.
"We want to deliver an Asian Games that supports development throughout the continent and provides a platform that connects all nations and celebrates our peaceful diversity."
