There will be eight stadiums for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, including Al Janoub Stadium, which features a retractable roof that is modeled after the sails of traditional Dhow boats.
Taking inspiration from the sails of traditional dhow boats, the design pays tribute to Al Wakrah’s seafaring past. A retractable roof and an innovative cooling system make it possible to use the stadium all year round.
This stadium was designed by AECOM and Zaha Hadid Architects. In February 2020, Al Janoub Park opened within the precinct. It includes cycling and running tracks, children’s play areas, a mosque, and community facilities together with a marketplace and other amenities.
