The Qatar Football Association has announced that the final of the 50th HH Amir Cup will be played on Friday, March 18, 2022, at Khalifa International Stadium, a venue for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 that has witnessed some unforgettable matches and significant events.
Al Sadd have trained their guns on retaining the prestigious Amir Cup – the 50th edition of which will begin Sunday. The QNB Stars League leaders are on a record 43-match unbeaten streak but their coach Javi Gracia is aware that nothing can be taken for granted..
This year’s HH the Amir Cup football final between Al Sadd and Al Rayyan will be held at 100% occupancy with the 40,000-seater Al Thumama Stadium set to host the marquee match on October 22.
Reigning champions Al Sadd were too good for the second division side Muaither as they romped to a 7-0 win in the last 16 match of the Amir Cup Tuesday.
Al Sadd withstood an inspired performance by Al Arabi to win the Amir Cup for a record 17th time with a 2-1 win at the brand new Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan on Friday.
Amid strict health and safety protocols, Al Rayyan stadium will reach approximately 50% capacity when it hosts this year's Amir Cup final between Al Sadd and Al Arabi on December 18 – Qatar National Day.
More than 1,000 volunteers from Qatar and across the region helped ensure the Amir Cup final, the first match to be played at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah City, was a tremendous success.
