Al-Thumama Stadium – Design by AEB (collaborator and end-user in this proposal)

Al-Thumama Stadium Qatar SPORTE.3Q case study

Al Thumama Stadium will become an iconic feature of Qatar’s landscape, from the ground and the air.

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. Located in the vicinity of Doha’s Hamad International Airport, a short 15km 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™, Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) plans to convert it from a 40,000-seater into a 20,000 capacity stadium, housing a sports clinic and hotel.
