Qatar has launched the first 2022 FIFA World Cup stadium – five years before the tournament begins – at an event attended by more than 40,000 people in Doha.

Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani cut the ribbon and officially launched the new Khalifa International Stadium at an inauguration ceremony that included a light show from newly installed LED lights, a performance from the Emiri Guard and a fireworks display for the sell-out crowd.

This was followed by the kick-off for the final of the Emir Cup, Qatar’s biggest domestic tournament. The final was the first sporting event held at the stadium, and it saw Spain’s Xavi Hernandez lift the trophy for his Qatari club, Al Sadd.

“As organisers, to see a 2022 FIFA World Cup stadium already delivered and fully operational is a great joy, besides giving us confidence regarding the level of preparations in Qatar. There is undoubtedly strong commitment from the local authorities through the Supreme Committee and although five years seems a long way off, the benefit of time will make sure Qatar delivers an amazing tournament in 2022,” said Gianni Infantino, FIFA president.

Expanded to seat 40,000 spectators, the stadium has undergone extensive renovation works ahead of the tournament, when it will host matches until the quarter-finals. These include the installation of cooling technology that was promised during Qatar’s successful bid. Officials said that it kept the pitch at 20C and the stands at 23C, while using 40% less energy than traditional cooling methods.

“The completion of our first stadium more than five years before the Qatar World Cup begins is an important milestone that reflects our determination to deliver a tournament the entire Arab world is proud to be a part of,” said Hassan Al Thawadi, secretary general of the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC).
