Al-Shamal Stadium (Arabic: ملعب الشمال) is a proposed football stadium which will be built in Ash-Shamal, Qatar in time for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. It will be one of the biggest stadiums in Qatar, due to be opened in Summer of 2017.
The shape of the Al-Shamal Stadium is derived from the traditional dhow, the local fishing boats commonly used in Arab States of the Persian Gulf, and appears from afar as a boat on the shore waiting to launch. Post FIFA World Cup, the modular upper tier of the stadium will be disassembled for shipment to developing countries.
