Al Janoub Stadium

Al Janoub Stadium burst into life as it was unveiled to the world in spectacular style, being inaugurated with the 2019 Emir Cup final as Al Duhail lifted the trophy beneath a sky awash with triumphant fireworks. Found in the coastal city of Al Wakrah – situated just south of capital Doha – the area’s connection with the sea, having been formerly known as a pearling village, influenced the flowing design of the striking stadium’s exterior, which was developed in conjunction with the world famous Zaha Hadid Architects.
