Al Rayyan Stadium already has a successful football club ready and eager to take up residence after the 2022 FIFA World Cup™. As one of the most popular clubs in Qatar, Al Rayyan Sports Club will bring thousands of fans to this magnificent arena. With the post-tournament seating capacity reduced to 20,000 (the other 20,000 will be donated to football development projects abroad), Al Rayyan fans will create a buzzing atmosphere in the ground.
A regional sporting hub in the making
Locals will also be keen to experience the many other sporting facilities that are springing up as part of this stadium complex. Cricket pitches, football training pitches, an aquatics centre, tennis courts, bowling alleys, pool halls, a skate park and an athletics track are just some of the facilities that the community can look forward to using in coming years. Al Rayyan Stadium will play a leading role in fulfilling Qatar National Vision 2030's key objective of promoting healthy lifestyles in Qatar.
The sheer amount – and quality – of the sporting facilities here will turn the area into a sporting hub for Al Rayyan, the rest of Qatar and beyond.
Where community comes together
Al Rayyan will also offer places for those who want to take it a little easier, ideal for warm days on the fringes of the desert. Beautifully landscaped parks, cafés, fountains, shaded walkways and spas will take their place alongside the stadium.
It is important in a tight-knit, family-oriented city such as Al Rayyan that people have places where they can socialise – and perhaps reminisce about a remarkable FIFA World Cup™ that unfolded in their neighbourhood.
