After the completion of the tournament, the top tier seating will be given to the developing nations which need stadium seating.

Al Rayyan stadium

History, local culture and popular football team – Al Rayyan Sports Club are the highlights of the city. The new arena can hold 40,000 fans and the venue will host matches up to quarter final stages.

The design of Al Rayyan Stadium is the story of Qatar. Its most striking feature is a glowing façade, made from patterns that characterise different aspects of the country: the importance of family, the beauty of the desert, the native flora and fauna, local and international trade.
