That shared experience is only possible thanks to the latest developments in phones, TVs and other tech devices – and being at the forefront of these developments, ensuring that as many people as possible can connect to the tournament in Qatar and be a part of the action , is the innovative Chinese company TCL Technology.

As part of its Inspire Greatness vision, TCL has turned to this unique quartet of football players to represent their message.
The French defender Raphael Varane was the winner with his country at the corresponding tournament in Russia four years ago. And now the Manchester United defender, formerly with Real Madrid, is taking to the pitch in Qatar to help his compatriots defend their trophy.
Among those trying to stop Varane will be his fellow TCL ambassadors: England and Manchester City star Phil Foden, Real Madrid’s Brazilian sensation Rodrygo, and Spain and Barcelona prodigy Pedri.
It is an unparalleled lineup of global soccer stars united in their desire to show how soccer, in partnership with TCL Technology, can help inspire Greatness around the world.
The Fab Four may be in different international camps in Qatar, but they can stay connected thanks to TCL’s latest mobile products, including the TCL 30 series mobile phones and TCL NXTPAPER 10s and TCL TAB 10s 5G (opens in new tab) tablets.

He is also the proud owner of the new TCL NXTWEAR AIR (opens in new tab) eyewear, as well as the award-winning NXTPAPER 10s (opens in new tab) tablet, which features TCL’s Eye Care technology to reduce harmful blue light from screens.
Foden tells us: “It is very important for me to use technology to stay connected these days. We spend so many hours in the hotel room and don’t have much to do.
“As players we can’t really go out on the street, so yes, it’s important to keep in touch with your family and stay happy off the pitch. I think that helps on the pitch as well.”
