Sports stadiums are no longer venues where you simply sit and watch the game, its more about enjoying a complete immersive experience. As Qatar is gearing up to host the epic 2022 FIFA World Cup, one more stadium—the Al Bayt Stadium located in Al Khor is nearing completion and looks forward to offering football lovers an amazing experience.

The 60,000 seats for fans, produced by local company Coastal Qatar, are almost all installed. The stadium’s inner architecture is nearly finished and the tunnels that players will emerge from in 2022 are ready. Outside the stadium, grass and trees are nearly fully planted throughout the precinct. Lakes and water features have also been created.

Al Bayt Stadium, which embodies an important part of Qatar’s past and simulates its present, was inspired by the traditional Arabian tent inhabited by Qataris who lived in the desert of Qatar.

The design of the stadium is inspired by the traditional Arabian tents inhabited by ancient Qataris and is a symbol of Qatar's warm hospitality.

One of the largest sports projects in the world

The stadium project is considered as one of the largest sports projects in the world. It is designed on an area of 1.4mn square metres. It has an energy centre, cooling and Kahramaa stations, as well as a large 400,000 square metre garden and four lakes surrounding it, besides walking and running tracks and tracks for horses and camels.

The stadium has four main outdoor playgrounds to be used for training during the tournament, six restaurants around the areas for families and children’s games. The project includes more than 190 electronic gates distributed around it for public access and exit, as well as 12 emergency tunnels to be used in the event of an emergency. There is also a main tunnel for the services of the entry and exit of logistics mechanisms and for the delivery of food to restaurants inside the stadium.

Hotel rooms

95 rooms have been constructed in different areas of the stadium to be rented to sponsoring companies and contributors to the organisation of the World Cup. They are designed in a way that can be easily converted after the World Cup to hotel rooms. Check out the video to see the progress of the rooms in the stadium.

Folding roof

The stadium has a folding roof which can be folded in just 20 minutes, and will help turn the stadium into a gym that can be used for many activities, whether sports or non-sports.
