The Lusail Stadium is set to be a historic venue for a plethora of reasons. It will be the largest stadium by capacity at the first FIFA World Cup™ hosted in the Gulf, it will be the centrepiece of a brand new metropolis named Lusail City, and its legacy after the global finals will see the stadium’s infrastructure converted into a community space including schools, shops, cafés, sporting facilities and health clinics.
To spread the legacy of Qatar 2022 around the world after the finals have concluded, most of the stadium’s 80,000 seats will be removed and donated to sporting projects across the globe.
With a design which alludes to the decorative motifs on bowls found across the Arab world, the Lusail Stadium will surely host up a feast of football for fans from across the planet in 2022.
