About Al Rayyan Stadium

Taking inspiration from Qatari cultural symbols, Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium reflects the desert and cultural beauty around it. Al Rayyan’s residents are known for their love of tradition and hospitality, which fans can enjoy.

Designed specifically for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM, the stadium has 45,032 seats. To make the stadium more suitable for local community use, its capacity will be reduced by half after the tournament.

Al Rayyan Stadium

The stadium’s most striking feature is a glowing facade, comprised of patterns that characterise different aspects of the country: the importance of family, the beauty of the desert, the native lora and fauna, and local and international trade. 

A fifth shape, a shield, brings together all the others, representing the strength and unity that is particularly relevant to the city of Al Rayyan.

The stadium was inaugurated on 18 December 2020 when it hosted the Amir Cup final.

Al Rayyan Stadium Legacy and Sustainability 

According to the FIFA website, the modular upper tier will be removed after the tournament, with the seats being re-purposed into sporting facilities in Qatar and overseas.

Many of the materials from the deconstructed venue that once occupied this site have been used in the new complex, including some which have been re-purposed into public art installations. More than 90 per cent of the construction materials have been reused or recycled. 

Trees that once surrounded the old venue have been retained for future replanting in order to minimise damage to the natural environment. 

Energy and water efficiency measures have been embedded to further reduce the stadium’s carbon footprint, while the Doha Metro connection will allow for seamless travel to and from the venue. The precinct will feature 125,000m² of green space, along with native, low-water consumption plants for the community to enjoy.

The precinct will feature an array of sporting facilities, including cricket pitches, football pitches, a children’s playground, outdoor gym facilities, an aquatics centre, tennis courts, a skate park and an athletics track.
