The quarter-final matches of the 50th edition of the Amir Cup will be held on March 5 and 6, the Qatar Football Association (QFA) announced yesterday. 

Defending champions Al Sadd will open the last eight fixture with a match against Al Ahli at 4:50pm on March 5 at the Jassim bin Hamad Stadium.

That will be followed by last year’s runner-up Al Rayyan taking on Al Wakrah at 7:45 pm at the same venue. 

On Sunday, March 6, Al Sailiya and Al Duhail clash at 4:50pm at the Grand Hamad Stadium, followed by Qatar SC and Al Gharafa at 7:45 pm.

QFA also confirmed that both the semi-finals will be held on March 14. 

The winner between Al Sadd and Al Ahli will take on the winner between Al Sailiya and Al Duhail in the first semi-final. 

The second semi pits the winner of Al Rayyan and Al Wakrah against the winner of Qatar SC and Al Gharafa. The timings and venue for the semis will be announced later.

All of the eight teams have played in the Amir Cup final previously, and all but two – Al Wakrah and Al Sailiya – have won the prestigious trophy.
