Hosting 2022 World Cup Final
Lusail is the largest World Cup stadium of the eight venues destined to host Qatar 2022, with a capacity of 80,000. After the tournament, parts of the stadium will be donated to develop sports infrastructure in other developing countries.
The design of the Lusail World Cup stadium, where the Qatar 2022 final will be played, was inspired by the food bowls and traditional utensils used in the Middle East's golden age, as well as the fusion of light and shadow.
Community created from stadium
Plans are in place to remodel the stadium space and surroundings into a community village with schools, homes, shopping centres, restaurants, medical clinics, and a football pitch.
