In what is a feather on the hat for the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the sustainability features at the Al Rayyan stadium came in for a commendation.
As a result, GSAS Design & Build Certification (four-star rating), GSAS Construction Management Certification (Class A*) and GSAS Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) Compliance Certificates were awarded to the Al Rayyan stadium.
The 40000-capacity stadium is undergoing the final stages of its construction and is expected to be inaugurated very soon, becoming the fourth 2022 World Cup venue to be completed after the Khalifa International stadium, Al Janoub stadium and the Education City stadium.

It is also 20 per cent more energy efficient compared to other venues and uses 20 per cent less water, thanks to sustainable measures.
Qatar’s hosting of the FIFA World Cup. I offer huge congratulations to everyone involved in the design and construction of this striking venue.”
Engineer Bodour Al Meer, the SC’s Sustainability & Environment Senior Manager, said: “Sustainability has been at the heart of the Al Rayyan Stadium project right from the very start.
