Al Thumama Stadium was designed by Qatari architect Ibrahim M. Jaidah. On 22 October 2021, the stadium hosted the 2021 Amir Cup final, which also marked the official unveiling of the Atuma Stadium.
The Atuma Stadium is located about 12 kilometers from the center of Doha. The design of the course was inspired by a headdress called a gahfiya, a traditional woven hat worn by men in the Middle East and Arab regions. The Atuma Stadium is a circular structure with a diameter of 240 meters and is covered with nearly 25,000 square meters of perforated panels with lace trim. A cooling system inside the stadium keeps the temperature inside at 18 degrees Celsius during matches. The Atuma Stadium is equipped with 54 air handling units.
The Atuma Stadium is located in a neighborhood outside Doha. "There were a number of options for the stadium," Almana said. "After the efforts of the Qatar World Cup Delivery and Inheritance Supreme Committee (SC) and the residents of the Atuma community, the decision was made to build the stadium here to promote the development of local sports facilities."
The Atouama Stadium will host eight matches in Qatar, including the group stage, quarter-finals and quarter-finals. Not only host Qatar, but also Orange Netherlands, newly crowned African champions Senegal, Matador Spain and European champions Belgium will all be here in the group stage to put on another spectacular show for the fans.
The Atuma Stadium has a capacity of up to 40,000 spectators for a single match during the Qatar World Cup. After the Qatar World Cup, 20,000 seats in the upper deck of the Atuma Stadium will be donated to countries in need of sports infrastructure. The remaining part of the stadium will be used for football and other sporting events. There are also facilities around the court for a variety of sports including handball, swimming, basketball, running and cycling. There are also future plans to develop retail, a sports medicine clinic and boutique hotels around the course.
The Atuma Stadium recently received five-star certification from the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS). The innovative design of the course reflects the concept of sustainable development.
