Over the next few days, we will release a short video everyday about stadiums in Qatar that are under construction for the biggest sporting event in the world.
First one in this series is the Al Rayyan Stadium and Precinct, which will be built on the site of Ahmed Bin Ali Stadium.
The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) will deliver the new, 40,000-seat Al Rayyan Stadium, which is a proposed venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™.
The precinct surrounding Al Rayyan Stadium will include a vast range of facilities, including a mosque and aquatics centre.
