  • Client Qatar Foundation
  • Location Doha Qatar
  • Size 140.000M2
  • Spectators 40.000
  • Status Finished

As well as fulfilling the clients brief as the main sports complex for the Education City in Doha, Fenwick Iribarren Architects wanted to exploit it as a major social focal point within the campus as a green area with sun shading elements for public comfort. The stadium has been one of the venues which has hosted matches in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. The stadium was envisioned for group, knockout and quarter-final matches during the tournament with a capacity for 40.000 spectators. The stadium’s capacity will be reduced to 25.000 following the world cup by dismantling the upper tier.
