Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Khalifa International Stadium is a sports fan's haven and a testament to Qatar's commitment to hosting world-class events. The moment you step inside, you're struck by the grandeur of the arena. The architecture is stunning, and the facilities are top-notch. But what truly sets this stadium apart is the atmosphere during a live match. Whether it's a football game or a major tournament, the energy in the air is palpable, and the roar of the crowd is deafening. It's not just a sports venue; it's a place where unforgettable moments are made, where the love for the game is celebrated, and where fans become a united force.

Qatar's first national stadium originally built in 1976 but renovated several times including for the recent World Cup. I watched 3 games in the stadium while there for the Cup. This was probably the least favorite of the 6 stadiums I experienced. Keep in mind that all the stadiums ranged from being really good to fantastic. On a positive note, it is located conveniently near a Metro station and the adjacent Aspire Park with its Tower provides a stunning sight. The Villagio Mall next door is beautiful and was a good place to hang out and grab a bite before heading into the stadium. However, being the former national stadium, it was not designed primarily for football and the running track causes the pitch to be far from the stands making for a less than ideal football watching experience.

This is Qatar's first stadium ever, built in 1976 when football grew in popularity.
It was renovated and enlarged in 2005 for the 2006 Asian games, and then further remodeled and enlarged for the 2022 World Cup.
The stadium is in a remoter part of Doha, in Aspire park, easily recognizable by the same name tower. It's around half an hour drive from downtown.
Once there you have several attractions to explore: the 3,2,1 Olympic museum which is attached to it, the Aspire park and the Villaggio shopping mall. However, I don't think you can tour the stadium.

Fine stadium, as was our experience with all of the stadiums during the world cup. Capacity is low and the design is such that one end has a lot more supporters than the other end which isn't always great for football. Pitch is far from the stands due to the athletics tracks. Not the best, but a good ground. Very easily accessible by metro.

I visited the stadium during the FIFA World Cup.
A Metro Station is Next to the stadium.

This stadium is the old national stadium and it‘s nice.
The scenery with the Aspire tower and the stadium is great, especially in the evening.

Inside the stadium you will notice that it is not brand new and not state of the art like the new stadium in Lusail.

In the evening a visit is very nice.

In my opinion the weakest of 5he stadia used for the World Cup although it does have some pretty stiff competition. Originally built for athletics and it feels like an athletics stadium and I enjoyed the World athletics champs there a cou0le of years ago. The problem is that for football the crowd is too far removed from the pitch as there is a significant gap between the stands and the touch line. Makes it difficult to see what’s going on at the far end.
Well serviced by metro and good parking and aircon works well but ultimatelas it was being used for a football match for me it fell a bit short of th3 mark

Enjoyed this venue more than the larger Lusail Stadium venue that will serve as the site for the 2022 World Cup finals. It has good sight lines all around and has elevator service to the higher levels, subject to staff permission.

On the downside, they turned on the air conditioning full blast in late November, so many of us were freezing and glad when game was over to get back outside to more normal cool temperatures.

Note: a iOS buying stadium concessions. Way over priced!
