Al Janoub Stadium

This stadium’s design reflects the sails of Qatar’s wooden dhow boats, traditionally responsible for much of the country’s economy. One of eight venues to host the FIFA World Cup 2022, Al Janoub Stadium, was designed by British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid. The stadium is slated to be used as a local community venue after the competition.

Al Thumama Stadium

Built for the FIFA World Cup 2022™, Thumama Stadium is built in the shape of local headwear. Al Thumama Stadium is named after the area in which it is located, which, in turn, took its name from a tree that grows locally. After the FIFA World Cup 2022™, the stadium’s seating capacity will be halved, and it will become a mixed-use leisure development.

Al Bayt Stadium

Shaped like a traditional Bedouin tent, Al Bayt will host the opening match of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM.. The first match of the first FIFA World Cup 2022™  to take place in the Middle East will fittingly be held in a stadium called home - Al Bayt (in Arabic). Al Bayt Stadium is built in the shape of a traditional Bedouin tent - bayt al sha’ar, a symbol of hospitality in the desert where guests are welcomed from far and wide to relax and meet locals.
