Located in the heart of futuristic Lusail City is the biggest tournament venue of #Qatar 2022, said a tweet by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy.
The 80,000-seater stadium reflects Qatar’s ambition and its passion for sharing Arab culture with the world. The Fifa World Cup Qatar 2022 finals will be staged in the Lusail Stadium, with billions from across the world gathering here to watch on.
This magnificent stadium design draws inspiration from the interplay of light and shadow which characterizes the fanar lantern. It shape and façade reflect the intricate decorative motifs on bowls, vessels and other art pieces noticed across the Arab and Islamic world during the rise of civilization in the region.
The venue will be the centrepiece of Lusail, the newly built state-of-the-art metropolis, located 15km north of Central Doha.
The Lusail Stadium will be transformed into a community space after the 2022 tournament, and will include schools, cafes, shops, sporting amenities and health clinics.
