The Stadium Design & Inspiration: Al Rayyan Stadium and Precinct is designed to showcase Qatar’s culture and heritage.  The Stadium design is inspired by local patterns and dune-like structures, which resemble the sand dunes that surround traditional desert tents.  The design was launched in a ceremony last year at an event attended by over 500 guests from the club and the community.

Recognition for the Design: The SC was awarded the Stadium Design of the Year award for Al Rayyan Stadium at the 2016 World Stadium Congress in Doha earlier this month. Al Rayyan Stadium is the fifth stadium design to be launched by the SC, following Al Wakrah Stadium, Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City, Khalifa International Stadium and Qatar Foundation Stadium, all of which are in different stages of construction.
