H.H. the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar officially launched the first proposed host venue of the 2022 FIFA World this weekend in front of 40,000 football fans.

The inauguration ceremony included a light show from newly installed LED lights, a performance from the Emiri Guard and a firework display that saw pyrotechnic experts display 2022 in the sky above the stadium in fireworks to mark the opening of the World Cup venue.

The final of Qatar’s biggest domestic trophy, the Emir Cup, kicked off shortly afterwards as the stadium’s first sporting event since being renovated ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

A joint venture of Midmac Contracting and Six Construct carried out an extensive renovation of the venue which will host matches until the quarter-finals of the 2022 World Cup.
