Countdown to FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022: four years to go
To mark the four years to go milestone until the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ kicks off, check out the progress we are making at each of our stadium sites.
With one stadium fully redeveloped and seven others under various stages of construction, all our infrastructure projects are set to be completed well before the tournament begins on 21 November 2022.
Al Wakrah Stadium
Design inspired by: Dame Zaha Hadid
Distance from Doha city centre: 23km (14 miles)
Inspired by the late British-Iraqi architect Dame Zaha Hadid, the futuristic Al Wakrah Stadium will host matches up to the quarter-finals stage during Qatar 2022. The design is inspired by the sails of traditional dhow boats – in tribute to Al Wakrah’s seafaring past. An innovative cooling system and retractable roof mean the stadium will be used all year round.
Work at Al Wakrah Stadium advances at a rapid pace. The stadium structure is now completed and work is progressing on internal finishes, the roof and façade works. The energy centre that will serve the stadium has been built, while the precinct infrastructure and hard landscaping are advancing.
