As the World Cup semi-finals approach, football (or soccer, as we call it in Canada) fans everywhere are getting excited and preparing to host gatherings to watch the final matches. And no World Cup finals watch party is complete without delicious World Cup food!
Find out why the FIFA World Cup 2022 has been so special to us and why Middle Eastern food catering for World Cup snacks is the best choice to celebrate this historic event.
The Qatar FIFA World Cup Has Been So Special
The World Cup finals are always an exciting event since we have the opportunity to see the best soccer teams from all around the globe competing in the most watched event of the year. The FIFA World Cup 2022 is particularly special for us for a few different reasons.
What’s Making it Special
This is the first time in the entire 92-year history of the event that the World Cup has ever been hosted by a Middle Eastern country. Although Qatar’s team was eliminated just two matches into the tournament, being the host of this global event is a significant achievement that’s being celebrated by Muslims all over the world.
For the first time ever, three women were selected to officiate the men’s World Cup, along with three female assistant referees. As an organization with a mission to empower women, Tayybeh is celebrating our talented sisters being given a chance to show their skills on the world stage.
Morocco has become the first African country to ever reach the World Cup semi-finals after they defeated Portugal last week. This also cause for celebration by Muslims globally since Morocco is an Arab and Muslim country. Millions will be watching with interest as they take on their former colonizers, France.
One of the beautiful things about the World Cup is that it’s not just a celebration of athleticism. It’s also a chance for the host country or region to share its culture and food with the world. When it comes to World Cup food this year, what could be better than Middle Eastern food?
Canada made it for the first time since 1986 and impressed despite an early exit. We are proud of them despite their losses (to semifinalists Morocco and Croatia, and World #2 Belgium).
