History and description

Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, also known as Al Rayyan Stadium, is a stadium that will be a part of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. It opened in 2020. The new stadium was built in lieu of the old Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, which is home to Al Rayyan SC. The original plan was to renovate the existing stadium, but eventually they decided to build a whole new one altogether.

The final match of the old stadium was played in 2014. Preparation works for the new stadium started in late 2016. The final designs for the new stadium were presented in 2015, and foundation works started in late 2016.

The Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium officially opened on 18 December 2020 with the Amir Cup Final between Al-Sadd and Al-Arabi (2-1). A few months later, the stadium was one of the two venues, alongside Education City Stadium, of the 2020 FIFA Club World Cup that was played in early 2021 due to Covid-19. It hosted among others one of the two semi-finals.

The stadium will have a capacity of around 40,000 seats after the World Cup. However, nearly half of those seats will be removed again afterwards, resulting in an actual capacity of 21,000.

The prominent feature of the building is its facade, which incorporates various symbols of Qatari culture and is inspired by the sand dunes of the nearby desert.

During the World Cup, the stadium will be hosting five first round group matches and one round of 16 match.
