Al Janoub Stadium is set to host matches up to and including the round of 16 stage during Qatar 2022.
Located in the southern city of Al Wakrah, the 40,000-capacity Al Janoub Stadium opened on 16 May 2019 with the Amir Cup final.
One of Qatar's oldest continuously inhabited areas, Al Wakrah was long a centre for pearl diving and fishing. The traditional dhow boats used in these pursuits inspired the design of Al Janoub Stadium. At its inauguration, a stunning pre-match show paid tribute to Al Wakrah's heritage and to Zaha Hadid, the architect whose firm designed the stadium's boldly futuristic shape.
As football fans approach the stadium, they will be greeted by beautiful parkland and the arena's elegant architecture.
There's also plenty for fans to do around Al Wakrah before and after matches. Visitors can take a stroll along the waterfront, buy unique local wares at the souq or discover the area's rich history at a museum.
It's not just visitors from overseas who can enjoy this wonderful venue. A school; wedding hall; cycling, horse riding and running tracks; restaurants; marketplaces; gyms; and parkland are just some of the new amenities that are being developed to accompany Al Janoub Stadium. Residents will see great long-term benefits from the project, which will bring their tightly knit community even closer together.
After the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, Al Janoub Stadium will become a new home for sport and entertainment in southern Qatar. Its capacity will be reduced to 20,000, guaranteeing an electric atmosphere. The other 20,000 seats will be donated to football development projects overseas, once again demonstrating Al Wakrah's innovative nature and ability to connect with far-off lands.
