Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium Legacy
Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan already has a successful football club that is ready and eager to take up residence after the FIFA World Cup 2022™. 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 20,000 (the other 20,000 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 springing up as part of this stadium complex. Six football training pitches, a cricket pitch, aquatics centre, tennis courts, skate park, horse riding track, cycling track, gym equipment and an athletics track are just some of the facilities that the community can look forward to using. Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium will play a leading role in fulfilling the key Qatar National Vision 2030 objective of promoting healthy lifestyles in Qatar.
The sheer number – and quality – of sporting facilities here will turn the area into a sporting hub for Al Rayyan, 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, a playground, cafés, fountains, walkways and spas will take their place alongside the stadium, in addition to the popular Mall of Qatar.
In a tight-knit, family-oriented city such as Al Rayyan, it’s vital that people have places where they can socialise – and perhaps reminisce about a remarkable FIFA World Cup™ that unfolded in their neighbourhood.
