A spectacular new stadium is rising up on the site of the old Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan. It will be a unique venue, with a striking design that represents Qatar's history and future.
Progress on site is clear, with concrete stands and the columns that will support the roof in place.

Although this project is an international endeavour, one crucial element of the stadium – its 40,000 seats – will be produced by a local factory at Coastal Qatar. This boost to Qatar's economy is just one small part of the long-term legacy being built as this arena rises up.
