Description: Al-Rayyan Stadium

Along initial plans from 2010, the stadium in Al Rayyan (western outskirts of Doha) was to be retained for the 2022 World Cup. It was supposed to have a temporary upper tier and thoroughly revamped infrastructure.

However in 2014 the plan was changed. Demolition and building of a new 20,000-seat stadium in the same spot proved to be a more suitable solution, allowing for better accommodation of the temporary 23,000-seat sections. Those are to be dismantled and donated to developing countries after the tournament.

Up to 90% of the old stadium is to be reused both as equipment for other stadia (floodlights, transformers, seats) and construction material (recycled rubble). The new arena will be surrounded by an extensive public green complex with amateur and professional sports amenities.

Demolition began on September 30, 2014 and the delivered new stadium should be ready by the end of March 2019.
