This will be the sixth of eight stadiums constructed for football’s biggest tournament and will have a capacity of 40,000.
It’s set to open on October 22, and first match to be held there will be the Emir Cup final between Xavi Hernandez’s Al Sadd and Al Rayyan, who are coached by Laurent Blanc.
There are now just two more stadiums to be officially opened – the Ras Abu Aboud and the Lusail Stadium, which will host the World Cup final.
The stadiums which already opened their doors are the Khalifa International, Al Janoub, Education City, Ahmad Bin Ali and Al Bayt stadiums, which are soon to be followed by the Al Thumama.
This latest ground will host the quarter finals of the World Cup as well as the FIFA Arab Cup which will take place between November and December of this year.
