40,000 capacity arena
Inspired by the gahfiya - a traditional woven cap worn by men and boys across the Middle East.
Group stage matches to be assigned after Final Draw
Al Thumama stadium, inspired by the traditional gahfiya, a woven cap which forms an important part of the traditional dress of the area, is a magnificent ode to the culture, history and symbolism of the area.
The 40,000 seat stadium, built specifically for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, will play host to a number of matches up until the quarter-final stage.
At the events closing, the stadiums capacity will be reduced to 20,000 seats with the additional seating being gifted to developing nations, a true reflection of the generosity of the Qatari people.
A boutique hotel will replace the top seating of the stadium and branch of the world-renowned Aspetar Sports Clinic will be added. This way the stadium will continue to serve the community long after the World Cup has ended.
