Ahmad bin Ali Stadium, popularly known as the Al-Rayyan Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar. It is currently used mostly for football matches and it is the home to Al-Rayyan Sports Club and Al-Kharitiyath Sports Club. The stadium is named after Ahmad bin Ali Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar from 1960 to 1972. The former stadium, built-in 2003, had a seating capacity of 21,282 and was demolished in 2015. The new Al Rayyan Stadium has a seating capacity of 50,000.
The renovation includes a huge 'media facade' with a membrane that will act as a screen for projections, news, commercials, sports updates, current tournament information, and matches. Seating capacity was increased to 50,000 and all seats were shaded. Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, built on the site of a venue with the same name, incorporates symbols of Qatari culture into its spectacular undulating façade. The facilities surrounding the stadium also mirror the country, with sand dune-shaped structures recalling the beautifully wild lands to the west.
The inauguration of the stadium took place on 18 December 2020, which was Qatar's National Day. The Al-Rayyan Stadium is one of eight stadiums being converted for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar.
