A giant tent structure will cover this whole stadium in the northern city of Al Khor. The stadium will host matches right through to the FIFA World Cup 2022™ semi-finals.
Being delivered by Aspire Zone Foundation, the stadium takes its name from bayt al sha’ar – tents historically used by nomadic peoples in Qatar and the Gulf region. In common with Qatar’s famously hospitable people, Al Bayt Stadium will welcome guests from far and wide, entertaining them and inviting them to experience the country’s traditional culture.
The stadium design honours Qatar’s past and present, while keeping one eye on the future of the community. With the sustainability goals of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy firmly in mind, its creation will be a model of green development. Facilities for the community will spring up around it. As well as providing a first-class venue for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, this arena will become a shining example for future stadium construction.
