Qatar’s most popular football tournament the Amir Cup brings together teams from the QNB Qatar Stars League and the Second Division. The tournament runs for five weeks and lasts five rounds.

The Amir Cup was first staged in 1972 and has been held every year since then in the months of April and May. The annual event sees record crowds in every edition of the tournament.

The final of the tournament will be graced by HH the Amir along with a number of Ministers and their Excellencies.

Al Wakrah Stadium embodies a futuristic and bold design with a capacity of 40,000. It will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup quarterfinals and is a perfect reflection of the country’s innovative and ambitious spirit.

Earlier in March this year, SC announced that the stadium’s grass turf was laid in record time. Completed in just 9 hours and 15 minutes, the turf-laying of the stadium set a new world-record by being the fastest ever in history.
