Doha Stadium

Doha Stadium (Hebrew: איצטדיון דוחא‎, Etztadion Doha; Arabic: ستاد دوحة‎) is the current home of Bnei Sakhnin.

Located in the small Arab Galilee town of Sakhnin, it was built with public funds largely from the State of Israel and the Qatar National Olympic Committee, and was named after the Qatari city of Doha. The decision by the Qataris to build the stadium in Israel came after a meeting between Member of Knesset Ahmed Tibi and Secretary-General of the Qatar National Olympic Committee Sheikh Saoud Abdulrahman Al-Thani after Tibi expressed his concern on the conditions for sport in Sakhnin. The involvement of Qatar was to show that relations between the two nations are peaceful and with a similar interest.

In July 2009, the north stand was opened with additional of 3,500 seats. There are plans to expand the stadium's capacity to 15,000.
