More than 100,000 toys of La'eeb, the official mascot of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, were shipped from Guangzhou to Qatar — the host nation of the World Cup — under the inspection of customs officials at the Baiyun International Airport on November 22.
This was the largest number of World Cup commodities exported via the city in 2022.

In fact, not only the toys, but other World Cup-related products such as sportswear, shoes, hats, throw pillows and decorations that are made in China have been inspected and released from the city's airport since the beginning of this year, mostly from October onward when the quadrennial football tournament was approaching. 
"We have made efforts to guide enterprises to prepare documents in advance so as to shorten the customs clearance time, making sure the World Cup products can be delivered efficiently," said Song Tingdong, a senior customs officer of the airport, adding that Guangzhou Customs has been strengthening regulation on intellectual property rights and the quality control of exports as well.
Customs statistics show that Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport has exported 37 batches of World Cup goods worth over 16.5 million yuan since October this year.
