The futuristic shape of the 40,000 capacity Al Wakrah Stadium mirrors the innovative, ambitious spirit of the Supreme Committee of Delivery & Legacy. The stadium’s design is inspired by the sails of traditional dhow boats. Furthermore, the stadium will host matches through to the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ quarter-finals.

Legacy

After the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ it will become the home of the local football team, Al Wakrah Sports Club, with a reduced capacity of 20,000 guaranteeing an electric atmosphere for their Qatar Stars League matches. The remaining 20,000 seats will be donated to football development projects overseas.

 

Sustainability

The whole shape of the stadium hides a remarkably green temperature control method, making its clever aerodynamic design do much of the work. The roof will provide significant shade, taking the weight off the advanced cooling systems in place. These green technologies make a valuable contribution to the objectives of the Qatar National Vision 2030.
