Qatar Tribune reported that the Al Wakrah Stadium, one of the venues of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, will be officially inaugurated on the sidelines of the final of the Amiri Cup, on May 16. Al Wakrah Stadium, designed by celebrated Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, has a capacity of 40,000 seats.

One of Qatar's oldest continuously inhabited areas, Al Wakrah has long been a seafaring trader, its people ploughing through the waves on traditional dhow boats—the sails of which inspired the set-to-open Al Wakrah Stadium.

This eye-catching sports venue will impress football fans with its elegant looks and flawless pitch. Supporters will also find plenty to do before and after matches around Al Wakrah, whether it's taking a stroll along the waterfront, buying unique local wares at the souq or discovering the area's rich history at a museum.
