Qatar has officially opened its second World Cup stadium. Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah city is located on the country's east coast, just to the south of the capital Doha.

The 40,000 capacity venue has taken 5 years to build. The ground features a fully retractable roof and innovative air conditioning system capable of cooling the pitch to 20°C. After the World Cup, the capacity will be reduced to 20,000 and become home to local club Al Wakrah SC.

The stadium was opened on Thursday 16th May 2019 when hosted the Amir Cup final between Al Sadd SC and Al-Duhail SC.

It becomes the 2nd ground to be completed after Khalifa International Stadium's renovation work was completed in 2017.

6 more stadiums are under construction and need to be completed in the next 3 years.
