Our 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ stadiums are some of the most ambitious and visually stunning venues ever conceived. 

Completed stadiums – ready for 2022

The first stadium ready for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ was Khalifa International Stadium. The renovated 40,000-seat venue opened to huge celebrations in May 2017. It has already hosted memorable football matches and electrifying concerts. It will soon host the IAAF World Athletics Championships Doha 2019 before making its FIFA World Cup™ debut in 2022.  

In May 2019, Al Janoub Stadium became the second Qatar 2022 venue to open its gates – and the first to be built from scratch. Its opening night was one to remember. The spectacular inauguration included a thrilling Amir Cup final watched by 40,000 excited fans.

Each stadium is uniquely designed to reflect Qatar's rich culture and history. All are being built with four priorities in mind:

Comfort

Advanced cooling technologies and smart design features will ensure that players, officials and spectators inside the stadiums are kept cool, whatever the weather outside. New metro and rail links, as well as shaded walkways, will make matchday journeys smooth, comfortable and environmentally friendly.

Sustainability

Sustainable development is a key objective of Qatar and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy. All of our proposed 2022 FIFA World Cup™ stadiums are being built with a resolute focus on the future.

We are working towards Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certification for all stadiums. To create venues that the next generation can be proud of, only the most environmentally friendly practices and materials are used. Renewable and low-energy solutions are incorporated wherever possible, helping stadiums to become energy self-sufficient – and even power other facilities.

New transport systems taking fans to stadiums will also assist in reducing our impact. Qatar Rail is building metro, rail and light rail systems that will take cars off the road, further reducing carbon emissions and the tournament's environmental impact.

Legacy

The 2022 FIFA World Cup™ will give Qatar and the Middle East a set of world-class stadiums which will become magnets for future events of every kind. 

Most of the venues will feature modular designs to allow excess seating to be removed post-2022. These seats will be donated to football projects around the globe, helping to spread the love of the game and spurring its worldwide development. The stadiums' reduced capacities will create arenas suitable for local football and other events, guaranteeing a vibrant atmosphere.

The areas surrounding the stadiums will become focal points for their communities. They will include high-quality sporting facilities, parks, schools, transport links, shopping centres and places of worship. These amenities will help the country to achieve the development goals set out in the Qatar National Vision 2030.

Training sites

Teams at the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ will have first-rate training facilities ideal for preparation and recuperation, helping them to play their best during the tournament.

In addition to FIFA-standard grass pitches, teams will have gyms, hydrotherapy and massage facilities, and medical rooms. Tactics rooms will help teams review matches and plan for upcoming games.

As with our stadiums, modular elements are being used in building the training sites. These modular elements can be dismantled and reused in other sporting and non-sporting projects after the tournament, extending the tournament's legacy even further.
