About Al Bayt Stadium

Al Bayt Stadium’s name and structure are inspired by Bayt Al Sha’ar, a tent used historically by nomadic peoples in Qatar and the Gulf. The stadium design honours Qatar’s past and present, while looking forward to the future.

The arena’s distinctive exterior reflects the black and white stripes of the traditional tent, as do the vibrant “sadu” patterns inside. The retractable roof provides covered seating for all spectators.

The stadium was inaugurated on 30 November 2021 during the opening day of the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™.

Commitment To Sustainability

During the development of Al Bayt Stadium, sustainability was paramount, and the upper tier was designed to be removed after the tournament – allowing the seats to be recommissioned. Several parks, lakes, and protected greenbelts surround the stadium, creating a lasting legacy.

The stadium was awarded a five-star rating for its design and construction from the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS), along with a Class A* rating for its construction process and a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio Compliance certificate.
