Doha, Qatar, 20 March 2022: Qatar Railways Company (Qatar Rail) and Mall of Qatar signed a naming agreement to grant the naming rights of the Doha Metro’s Al Riffa station as a part of the marketing opportunities offered by Qatar Rail for the business sector in the State of Qatar.

On the partnership, Mr. Ajlan Eid Al Enazi, Chief of Strategy and Business Development at Qatar Railways Company - said: “We are pleased to grant the naming rights of Al Riffa Station to the Mall of Qatar, one of the most prominent shopping destinations in the State of Qatar. This agreement comes as part of Qatar Rail's strategy to establish and develop longstanding partnerships with the business sector”.
He added: “We believe in the pivotal role that the business sector plays in achieving economic growth, and we on providing unique marketing opportunities and brand positioning for this sector at our networks. The naming rights for stations contribute to enhancing the market position of companies and promote their brand to metro users. We look forward to continuing Working forward with the Mall of Qatar”.
He continued: “Al Riffa - Mall of Qatar station, located on the green line of the Doha Metro, is one of the important and prominent stations in the metro network, as it is directly connected to Mall of Qatar through a pedestrian bridge. The station is also one of the stations that connect to the 2022 World Cup stadiums where it provides direct access to Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium”.
Mr. Emile Sarkis, General Manager of Mall of Qatar, said: “We thank the management of Qatar Rail for establishing the metro that has now evolved as one of the key transportation forms in the country. A key contributor to the sustainable development priorities outlined in Qatar National Vision 2030, the Doha Metro is a great example of smart urban mobility solutions. Our partnership to rename the station will not only add to our brand equity but also make it easier for commuters in accessing the country’s leading retail and lifestyle destination, which is directly linked to the station through an air-conditioned bridge. We are keen to further strengthen our collaboration with Qatar Rail to enhance our visitors experience”.
Mall of Qatar and Qatar Rail have shared a strong legacy of partnership following the opening of the Metro station Al Riffa. Building the air-conditioned bridge has been much appreciated by the public, who can access the mall comfortably without the trouble of passing at intersections or external roads, to be the only mall in Qatar that is directly connected to the metro station.
The opening of the Doha Metro Green Line in December 2019 was an important step in enhancing the attendance of visitors and shoppers to Mall of Qatar, as it carries passengers from various metro stations in Doha to the Mall. It also provided football fans with a comfortable means of transportation while attending the matches at Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium, which will be one of the stadiums hosting the 2022 World Cup Qatar.
