The dynamic and stunning design of the Al Thumama Stadium celebrates both Qatari and Arab culture’s richness as much as it embraces a new era of design. This stadium holds great significance, earning a special place in the hearts of the community, with its echoes resounding throughout the region.
The circular design of Al Thumama Stadium mimics the shape of the “ghafiyah,” which is the name for the traditional cap worn by men and children throughout the Arab world. The “ghafiyah” is an integral part of our culture and traditions, symbolizing the transition from childhood to adulthood. It represents self-confidence, ambition, and marks the first steps towards the future and the realization of dreams. The stadium has a capacity of 44,400 individuals.
