Al Rayyan Stadium Sustainability

Al Rayyan’s location on the edge of the desert has shaped a resourceful city that does not tolerate waste. So from its very conception, Al Rayyan Stadium project has had sustainability at its core, backed by the commitment of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) to green building.

Turning old into new

Many of the materials from the deconstructed Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium that once occupied this site will be used throughout the stadium complex, and some will even find a place in public art installations. Trees that once surrounded the old venue have been kept in place, minimising damage to the natural environment.

Any new materials required for construction will be carefully chosen for their environmentally friendly qualities, and used in lightweight building designs.

Making, not taking energy

One of the new additions to the site will be a renewable energy generation facility, which will not only help to power nearby amenities, but also serve as a valuable example to stadium developers worldwide.

Energy and water efficiency measures will be put into place, and further reductions in the stadium’s carbon footprint will come as the metro connection being delivered by Qatar Rail is completed.

By the time Al Rayyan Stadium hosts its first 2022 FIFA World Cup™ match, football fans will be travelling via environmentally friendly metro to a self-powering, sustainable venue.
