Al Rayyan Stadium already has a successful football club ready and eager
to take up residence after the 2022 FIFA World Cup™. As one of the most popular
clubs in Qatar, Al Rayyan Sports Club will bring thousands of fans to this
magnificent arena. With the post-tournament seating capacity reduced to 22,000
(the other 18,000 will be donated to football development projects abroad), Al
Rayyan fans will create a buzzing atmosphere in the ground.
A regional sporting hub in the making
Locals will also be keen to experience the many other sporting
facilities that are springing up as part of this stadium complex. Cricket
pitches, football training pitches, an aquatics centre, tennis courts, bowling
alleys, pool halls, a skate park and an athletics track are just some of the
facilities that the community can look forward to using in coming years. Al
Rayyan Stadium will play a leading role in fulfilling Qatar National Vision 2030’s key
objective of promoting healthy lifestyles in Qatar.
The sheer amount – and quality – of the sporting facilities here will turn the area into a sporting hub for Al Rayyan, the rest of Qatar and beyond.
Where community comes together
Al Rayyan will also offer places for those who want to take it a little
easier, ideal for warm days on the fringes of the desert. Beautifully
landscaped parks, cafés, fountains, shaded walkways and spas will take their
place alongside the stadium.
It is important in a tight-knit, family-oriented city such as Al Rayyan that people have places where they can socialise – and perhaps reminisce about a remarkable FIFA World Cup™ that unfolded in their neighbourhood.
