History & description

The new stadium, which is located in the town of Al Wakrah, was built to serve as one of the playing venues for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. It has a capacity of 40,000 people and was inaugurated on December 16, 2017. The stadium was part of Qatar's bid to host the World Cup, and in 2013 definite plans were presented for its construction. First preparations were started in 2014, but it took until 2016 for proper construction works to commence.

The stadium was scheduled to be completed in the last quarter of 2018, but some delays pushed that back to 2019. Al Janoub Stadium officially opened on 16 May 2019 with a match between Al-Duhail and Al-Sadd (4-1).

The symmetrical roof composed of three shells is the standout feature. Following the release of the designs, many people started noting the resemblance of the roof to female genitalia, but Zaha Hadid denied any comparisons.

The stadium is eligible to host World Cup matches up to the quarter-final. After the tournament, it will have a reduced capacity of 20,000 seats.

How to get to Al Janoub Stadium

The Al Janoub Stadium is located east of the town of Al Wakrah on the way to the village of Al Wukair. It is about 5 kilometers east from the central Souq and coast in Al Wakrah. Al Wakrah is located a little over 10 kilometers south of Doha and the distance to central Doha and The Corniche is just over 20 kilometers.

Metro officials say that the red line currently ends at the town where it connects to other lines, while a new stadium is only 5 kilometers down the road.
