Jalen Rose and Tracy McGrady Make Goodwill Trip to Qatar on Veterans Day

NBA Legends visit U.S. Military and Children of Qatar

Doha, Qatar --News Direct-- Blink

As part of a goodwill trip to Doha from Nov. 10-13, NBA Legends Jalen Rose and Tracy McGrady visited with U.S. Military personnel today and took a tour of some of Qatar’s 2022 World Cup sites. The Al Udeid Air Base in Doha serves as a primary logistics and command hub for U.S. operations in the Middle East.

Rose and McGrady also visited with school-aged Qatari children and university students from Qatar’s Education City, learning more about the country’s efforts to partner with the top global universities to continue to be at the forefront of education both now, and into the future.

“A highlight of our trip has definitely been visiting with our troops at the base in Doha on Veterans Day,” said Jalen Rose. “Qatar is clearly on a path to being the sports capital of the region. They’ll be on the world stage at the end of 2022 when they host the World Cup. It’s exciting to get a first look at how the preparations for the first large sporting event in a post-Covid pandemic world are coming along.”

“This is my second trip to Qatar and my first since 2018 when I visited with Klay Thompson, Carmelo Anthony, and Luke Walton,” said Tracy McGrady. “Both times, I have been made to feel at home by the incredible hospitality and warmth of the people. But this time is certainly extra special because of our visit with the U.S. troops serving in Qatar right now.”

The trip was organized by the U.S.-based event management company, Blink. Both NBA Legends will be documenting the trip on their social media channels.
