Work on the Lusail World Cup Stadium is still ongoing with the ground set to host the final match of the 2022 World Cup will be staged. The venue is set to be ready for 2021 as was initially earmarked by the competition organisation body the Supreme committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC).

To date, three World Cup 2022 stadiums have been inaugurated: Al-Khalifa International, Al-Janoub, and Education City with Al-Bayt and Al-Rayyan set to be inaugurated later in 2020. In the meantime construction continues at the remaining venues including Lusail which will be able to hold up to 80,000 spectators making it the venue with the highest possible capacity of all Qatar stadiums.

After the tournament it's envisaged that Lusail will become a community destination with the new city set to have schools, shopping centres, cafeterias, sports facilities, and medical centres for the newest city in the Gulf state.

This planning fits in with the original legacy plans originally devised by the Supreme Committee by taking of the tournament and devising projects that enable the infrastructure to be used for the local community. Lusail stadium will feature an exceptional design inspired by the combination of light and shadow with details that reflects the heritage of Arab and Islamic character.
