About Al Wakrah Stadium

The Al Wakrah Stadium design is inspired by the sails of traditional dhow boats, in tribute to Al Wakrah’s seafaring past. 

As one of Qatar’s oldest continuously inhabited areas, Al Wakrah has long been known as a centre for pearl diving and fishing and the use of flowing designs, timber and natural materials in the stadium construction is a homage to this heritage.

An innovative cooling system and retractable roof mean the stadium will be used all year round.

Al Wakrah Stadium Legacy and Sustainability 

According to the FIFA website, the stadium’s capacity will be reduced from 40,000 to 20,000 after the tournament, with the excess seats – from the upper tier – being donated to football development projects overseas.

Al Janoub Park, within the precinct, opened in February 2020. It features cycling and running tracks, children’s play areas and other green spaces. Eventually, there will be a marketplace and community facilities, including a mosque and a school.
