DOHA, QATAR – DECEMBER 03: General photo of the 974 stadium from  the inside during the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021 Group B match between Mauritania and United Emirates at Stadium 974 on December 3, 2021 in Doha, Qatar. 


Undoubtedly one of the most innovative FIFA World Cup™ stadium designs ever, the Stadium 974 will be constructed using shipping containers, removable seats and other modular ‘building blocks’. Further to its innovative structure, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy(SC) plans to dismantle the stadium entirely after the conclusion of the global finals, with the parts repurposed for use in other projects, giving a whole new meaning to the word ‘legacy’.

The SC also plans to renovate the site of the stadium itself into a dazzling waterfront development for the local community in Doha’s West Bay to enjoy for years to come.

Based on the design of traditional Arabic headwear, the gahfiya, the stadium aims to radiate the culture of the country and region with its intricately designed exterior. A short 12km journey south from central Doha, Al Thumama Stadium is named after a native tree which can be found growing in the area. Designed by Qatari architect Ibrahim M. Jaidah, following the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, Qatar’s  Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) plans to convert it from a 40,000 seater into a 20,000 capacity stadium, housing a sports clinic and hotel.

Al Janoub Stadium burst into life as it was unveiled to the world in spectacular style, being inaugurated with the 2019 Emir Cup final as Al Duhail Lifted the trophy beneath a sky awash with triumphant fireworks. Found in the coastal city of Al Wakrah – situated just South of capital Doha – the area’s connection with the sea, having been formerly known as a pearling village, influenced the flowing design of the striking stadium’s exterior, which was developed in conjunction with the world  famous Zaha Hadid Architects.

Due to its location on the edge of the desert, preserving nature has long been a priority in Al Rayyan – and this arena fits perfectly with the ethos of one of Qatar’s most traditional cities. Every part of the stadium district has been designed with sustainability in mind. After the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ has come to a close, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy(SC) plan to remove almost half of the stadium’s 40,000 modular seats and give them to football development projects abroad.

The Smaller post-tournament arena, meanwhile, will continue to take pride of place in Al Rayyan, particularly amongst fans of the much-loved local football team, Al Rayyan Sports Club. Built on the site of the club’s former ground, the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium incorporates symbols of Qatari culture into its spectacular undulating façade, while the surrounding facilities and sand dune shaped structure also reflect the surrounding land.

Al Rayyan’s much-loved Khalifa International Stadium is Qatar’s most historic football venue, having hosted the Asian Games, the Gulf Cup, including the Final between Liverpool and Flamengo. Built in 1976, a new chapter in the stadium’s storied past was written in 2017 when it reopened after the renovation and hosted the final of the Emir Cup, where FIFA World Cup™ winner Xavi’s Al-Sadd triumphed. The ultra-modern revamp, however, still honours the past with the Stadium’s iconic dual arches continuing to sweep the skyline.

This distinctive and uniquely Qatari stadium is set to rival the best in the world. Fans arriving at the 60,000-capacity arena, which will be covered with a giant tent-like structure, are certainly unlikely to have seen anything like it. The stadium takes its name from bayt al sha’ar – tents historically used by nomadic peoples in Qatar and the Gulf region. And like a true nomad’s tent, it will be portable. Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) plans to remove the upper tier of modular design seating following the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ and give it to developing nations in need of sporting infrastructure, forming part of the tournament’s legacy.

The stadium design honours Qatar’s past and present, while keeping one eye on the future of the community. With the sustainability goals of this World Cup firmly in mind, it will be a model of green development, surrounded by facilities for the local area.

The Lusail Stadium is set to be a historic venue for a plethora of reasons. It will be the largest stadium by capacity at the first FIFA World Cup™ hosted in the Gulf, it will be the centrepiece of a brand new metropolis named Lusail City, and its legacy after the global finals will see the stadium’s infrastructure converted into a community space including schools, shops, cafés, sporting facilities and health clinics.

To spread the legacy of Qatar 2022 around the world after the finals have concluded, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) plans to remove and donate most of the stadium’s 80,000 seats to sporting projects across the globe.

With a design which alludes to the decorative motifs on bowls found across the Arab world, the Lusail Stadium will surely host up a feast of football for fans from across the planet in 2022.
