Ivan Bravo - the director general of the Aspire Academy - has claimed that Qatar will play at the Copa America in 2019.
Qatar have never qualified for the World Cup - which they will host in 2022 - and the Asian nation currently sit at 101st place in the FIFA World Rankings.
However, it appears that the country could potentially face the likes of Brazil and Argentina after being invited to compete at the next staging of the Copa America, which will be held in Brazil.
At the Bilbao International Football Summit, Bravo said: "It will be the first time that Qatar has faced teams such as Brazil and Argentina.
"It will be a unique opportunity for the national team to gain experience, so that it can compete on the right level at the 2022 World Cup."
The majority of Qatar's recent games have taken place in the Middle East, although they did record a 1-0 win over Andorra in a friendly held in England last summer.
