This magnificent stadium will welcome an
impressive 60,000 football fans, while the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ matches hosted
here will be watched by hundreds of millions of fans worldwide. However the
legacy it leaves behind will be felt by countless more.
A far-reaching contribution at home & abroad
Some of those people will be in lands far
from Qatar, where future football stadiums will inherit some of those 60,000
seats. The modular construction of Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City will mean
that almost half of its seating can be removed and given to football
development projects around the world. Spreading a love of football and
encouraging healthy lifestyles will be a proud achievement for the Supreme
Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and Aspire
Zone Foundation, the SC stakeholder delivering this amazing venue.
Adapting to meet local needs & generate tourism
Reducing the capacity of the arena will
also benefit the local community in Al Khor. Not only will a new capacity of
nearly 32,000 be more suitable for post-FIFA World Cup™ events, but it will
create space for facilities that will attract visitors to this coastal
After the tournament has been won and lost, the upper concourse of the stadium will be converted into a hotel. A shopping centre will also be incorporated into the structure. A branch of Aspetar, the leading sports medicine facility, will also find a home there – drawing in athletes from around the globe.
The stadium’s healthy living legacy will continue outside its tent-like walls. As well as tracks for running, cycling and horse riding, there will be parks and play areas where families can simply enjoy some outdoor space.
Equally as important as its physical legacy of facilities, Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City will give future generations a fine example of how just one sporting venue can change countless lives.
