Neill Kehoe Leeds Beckett University

This case study explores issues relating to the strategic legacy planning process with reference to the empowerment of women. We establish the current strategic objectives of the organising committee of the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar (the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy) and how they form part of Qatar’s overall Sports Strategy with a focus on the empowerment of women. The strategic planning process which involves scenario planning for possible futures leading up to the 2022 World Cup is explored. The importance of stakeholder analysis within scenario planning alongside the process by which the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy can engage stakeholders is examined.
