Based on the design of traditional Arabic headwear, the gahfiya, the stadium aims to radiate the culture of the country and region with its intricately designed exterior. A short 12km journey south from central Doha, Al Thumama Stadium is named after a native tree which can be found growing in the area. Designed by Qatari architect Ibrahim M.Jaidah, following the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ it will convert from a 40,000-seater into a 20,000 capacity stadium, housing a sports clinic and hotel.
