The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) will reveal the new design for Al Rayyan Stadium at a special ceremony on April 22 at Ali bin Abdullah Fort in Al Rayyan. The redesigned Al Rayyan Stadium will be the fifth proposed host venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar to be unveiled by the SC.
Al Rayyan Sports Club’s new stadium will accommodate 40,000 spectators in tournament mode, with capacity being reduced to 20,000 in legacy mode and those additional seats being sent to nations in need of sporting infrastructure. The precinct surrounding the stadium will also include a range of facilities which will cater to the needs of the people of Al Rayyan.        
Yousef al-Musleh, Al Rayyan Stadium Project Manager at the SC, said: “Al Rayyan Sports Club is closely linked with Qatar’s football history and is one of the most popular clubs in Qatar. That is why we have chosen Ali bin Abdullah Fort - one of Al Rayyan’s historic landmarks - to host the design launch of Al Rayyan Stadium.
“The launch of the future home of Al Rayyan Sports Club will highlight the legacy it will leave for the club and its fans, as well as the city and its people after 2022.”
The deconstruction of the previous Al Rayyan Stadium was completed in March 2015. In line with the SC’s commitment to sustainability, at least 90% of the materials are going to be reused to build the new stadium on the same site, in addition to other sports facilities.
The design launch coincides with more positive news for Al Rayyan fans this week, as their club was promoted back into the first division.
