Qatar is all set to inaugurate the fourth World Cup stadium in December. The Al Rayyan Stadium will host the Amir Cup 2020 final between Al Arabi and Al Sadd SC on December 18, which falls on Qatar's National Day. Of the eight FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 stadiums, Al Rayyan Stadium is the fourth to be completed.

The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has said "the Al Rayyan Stadium will showcase the very best of Qatari culture when it hosts seven matches up to the round of 16 stages during Qatar 2022. The outer façade will be made up of intricate patterns representing Qatar, from its history of trade to its varied wildlife. Al Rayyan's desert landscapes will be reflected on the façade – and in the dune-shaped hospitality areas and merchandise stalls dotted around the stadium complex."

The Al Rayyan Stadium can fit in up to 40,000 spectators, it mentioned on its website. It also stated that three stadiums – Khalifa International, Al Janoub and Education City – have all been inaugurated and are fully operational, with the remaining five at various stages of construction.

All eight stadiums will be completed well in advance of the tournament, which will kick off on 20 November 2022.
