FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™

Khalifa International Stadium

Al Rayyan’s much-loved Khalifa International Stadium is Qatar’s most historic football venue, having hosted the Asian Games, the Gulf Cup, the AFC Asian Cup and five matches of the 2019 FIFA Club World Cup, including the Final between Liverpool and Flamengo. Built in 1976, a new chapter in the stadium’s storied past was written in 2017 when it reopened after renovation and hosted the final of the Emir Cup, where FIFA World Cup™ winner Xavi’s Al-Sadd triumphed. The ultra-modern revamp, however, still honours the past with the stadium’s iconic dual arches continuing to sweep the skyline.
