Here are the top five things to know about Lusail Stadium:

 

  • Futuristic yet historic

The perfectly futuristic appearance of Lusail stadium is inspired by the contrast of light and darkness that characterizes the fanar lantern.  Intricate artistic designs on bowls and other items typical of the golden period of art and handicraft in the Arab and Islamic world are echoed in the stadium’s shape and front.

  • Ready for a final

Compared to other World Cup venues in Qatar 2022, Lusail will host ten games. It will host elimination matches in the round of 16, quarterfinal, semifinal, and final in addition to the six qualification matches. In the Group C match, Argentinian and Saudi Arabian teams will contest at Lusail for the very first time on November 22, 2022

  • 3) A center for the neighborhood

The stadium is surrounded by various public assets, such as homes, shops, cafes, hospitals, and colleges. The moveable upper tier will be put to new use after the World Cup, and the seats will be given to a region without adequate sporting facilities.

  • A green city with an eco-friendly venue

Wastewater treatment techniques and ecological construction methods were used in the development of Lusail. Using recycled water to irrigate the venue plants, the facility saved 40% more water than typical stadium constructions. The roof, made of a cutting-edge substance called Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), shields the stadium from heated winds, filters out dust, lets in enough sunlight for the field to flourish, and offers cover, easing the pressure on the cooling system. Lusail was awarded a five-star grade for Building Design and Architecture under the Global Sustainability Assessment System as an outcome of these eco-friendly construction techniques.

  • Accessible by Doha’s public transit system

Hayya Card users would be allowed to use Doha’s public transit system for free from 11 November to 23 December 2022. The Lusail QNB Terminal on the Red Line, which is close to the venue, will serve as the entrance point for spectators utilizing the Doha Metro. The Al Khor Expressway will provide accessibility to the venue for vehicles. Numerous parking and transport facilities will be located adjacent to the stadium.
