Qatar Foundation Stadium

An amazing experience for fans & a bright future for football

The landscape around Qatar Foundation Stadium is dotted with leading universities, where cutting-edge research is conducted and academics inspire their students to be their best selves. This whole area, the home of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, buzzes with invention and a determination to make the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ a true catalyst for social and human development.

Its most direct contribution to international development will come after it has hosted matches through to the quarter-finals stage of the tournament. The arena’s capacity will be reduced to 25,000, and 15,000 seats will be donated to stadiums in developing countries, helping cultivate a passion for the game around the globe. 

This reduction in capacity will also add to the intimate, inclusive feeling created by the venue’s ultra-modern curves, which will encircle fans and keep the atmosphere firmly in the arena.
