Al Rayyan stadium demolished ahead of rebuild as Qatar World Cup venue

Qatar has finished razing Al Rayyan Stadium, reusing or recycling some 90 percent of its construction materials, and is now planning to go ahead with its reconstruction as a venue for the 2022 World Cup.

The stadium is expected to be completed in 2019. However, its final design has yet to be revealed. According to a spokesman for the Supreme Committee of Delivery and Legacy (SCDL), this will be done “soon.”

The design unveiling had previously been scheduled for Qatar National Day (Dec. 18) last year, but then was postponed at the last minute. Speaking to Doha News, the spokesman did not give a reason for the delay.

The stadium, which was the second to be announced as an arena for the 2022 tournament, is going to be built from scratch on the existing Al Rayyan site, with an increased capacity of 40,000 spectators, double the former arena’s space.
