Al Bayt Stadium

Shaped like the traditional “bayt al-shaar” tent used in the Gulf, Al Bayt was designed by Dar al-Handasah and has a capacity of 60,000 people.

Al Bayt will host nine matches including the opening game.

Education City

The 40,000-capacity “diamond in the desert” has an intricate, multi-faceted shell reminiscent of gems.

It was inaugurated on June 15, 2020, in a virtual event paying tribute to front-line healthcare workers fighting the coronavirus pandemic.

Khalifa International

Khalifa International is best known for its dual arches and wide canopy that help keep it cool year-round.

The 40,000-capacity stadium was the first venue ready for Qatar 2022.

Al Janoub Stadium

Designed by the late British Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, Al Janoub pays tribute to the Gulf's traditional dhow trading sailboats.

Al Janoub is in Qatar’s second-most populous city, Al Wakra, about 20km (13.6 miles) south of Doha.

Al Thumama Stadium

Al Thumama is inspired by the gahfiya - a traditional openwork skullcap worn by Arab men.

Its Qatari architect Ibrahim M Jaidah says Al Thumama's shape protects spectators from the sun, just like the gahfiya protects the head from the heat.

Stadium 974

AKA Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, this is considered the first completely dismantleable stadium in the history of the World Cup.

The 40,000-capacity stadium is named after Qatar’s international dialling code, +974, and after the number of shipping containers its built with.

Ahmed Bin Ali

Popularly known as Al Rayyan Stadium, was inaugurated on December 18, 2020, to mark two years until the World Cup 2022 final.

Inspired by desert sand dunes, the stadium's openwork cladding gives a feeling of constantly shifting bodies.

Lusail Stadium

Lusail Stadium is Qatar’s largest and will host the tournament final on December 18, along with matches during every stage of the event.

The stadium’s design is inspired by the interplay of light and shadow of the “fanar” lantern.
