The result is an upbeat and infectiously fun-filled 'musical' style TV commercial. The World Cup is set to bring fans from all over the world together in Russia this summer, and this new anthem from Qatar Airways will unite them as never before. The catchy and uplifting song expresses the airline's firm belief that sports is a universal language which has the power to inspire and encourage people to follow their dreams.
