THE CONCEPT OF AL THUMAMA STADIUM IS BASED ON A STRONG REFERENCE TO THE “AL GAHFIYA,” WHICH IS PART OF THE TYPICAL QATARI LOCAL DRESS.

  • Client Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy
  • Location Doha Qatar
  • Size 120.000M2
  • Spectators 40.000
  • Status Finished

The main goal for the stadium was to become a benchmark in sports facilities for the city of Qatar and the people living in the neighborhood, contributing to a healthier society and an entertainment space in Qatar.

The Al Thumama Stadium takes its name from the location where it is situated, which, in turn, derives its name from the tree that grows in this area.
The stadium was designed to meet all of FIFA’s requirements for group matches and quarter-final games for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The stadium has a capacity of 40,000 spectators but can be reduced to 20,000 spectators after the World Cup by removing the upper tier.
