The 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup will be held in Qatar next year. This is the beginning of the tournament. The venues of the tournament are being inaugurated in continuation of this.
Al Bayat Stadium was inaugurated on Tuesday (November 30). Earlier, six more venues were inaugurated. The six stadiums are Khalifa International, Al Janub, Education City, Ahmad Bin Ali, and Ali Thuman.
The Bayat Stadium was inaugurated with the Arab Cup match between Qatar and Bahrain. Where the hosts of the World Cup defeated Bahrain 1-0. The opening match of the Qatar World Cup will be held on this ground. Not only the opening match but a total of nine matches of the World Cup will also be held here. The location of this field is in Al Khar City. Its distance from Doha is 46 km. Its capacity is 60 thousand. After the World Cup, its capacity will be reduced to 32 thousand.
FIFA President Gianni Infantino was present at the opening ceremony of Al Bayat. “Al Bayat is a place where people can come together,” he said. Here everyone will come together. It is a symbol of the World Cup. Its journey has started through the Arab Cup. World Cup matches will also be held here. People from all over the world will start coming here. So playing in such a beautiful field means something great.
The ground was inaugurated by Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. During the inauguration, he said that the ground has been started with the FIFA Arab Cup. Which will later host the World Cup match. We are proud of that. This field represents Qatari and Arab culture.
