ICSS delivers FIFA Club World Cup 2020 Private Security Training Programme

As part of the framework agreement to support the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) with their preparations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, the ICSS has delivered another Private Security Training programme in preparation for the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020™ that will be held in February 2021.

The four-day training program, delivered to private security company supervisors and guards, was designed around the lessons learned from private security operations during the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019™ and the Asian Football Confederation Champions League 2020 tournaments and focuses on identified roles for both Supervisors and Guards to enhance their knowledge around safety and security dynamics, the security concept of the tournament and operational plans.

This course provided virtual online training to approximately 1600 Private Security Guards from six Qatar-based private security companies. Private security personnel deployed to tournament stadiums and training sites will undergo additional role-specific and venue-specific training before tournament operations.

Alain van Thiel Head, Safety and Security Training Development, ICSS said;

“Following the successful Private Security training programmes delivered for the AFC Champions League 2020 competitions, the ICSS is honored to assist the SCDL in training Private Security Supervisors and Officers for the second FIFA Club World Cup hosted in Qatar. With the increasing demands placed upon safety and security at major sporting events, Private Security plays an integral role in assisting and supporting the Qatari Police services to ensure a safe and secure event for all.
