Lusail Stadium – Qatar

2 min


It was in Lusail where Qatar’s founder, Sheikh Jassim bin Mohammed Al Thani, lived in the early 20th century, drawing up the blueprint for a new nation focused on the human and social development of its people above all else.

The 80,000-seat Lusail Stadium will embody Qatar’s ambition and its passion for sharing Arab culture with the world.

The design of this magnificent stadium is inspired by the interplay of light and shadow that characterises the fanar lantern. Its shape and façade echo the intricate decorative motifs on bowls and other vessels found across the Arab world and in museums and art galleries globally. 

The venue will become the centrepiece of Lusail City – a newly built, state-of-the-art metropolis where the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will both open and conclude. Lusail Stadium will write a new page in Qatar’s history, while paying homage to the rich past of the country and region. 

With swift progress at the venue, Qatar’s vision for a truly memorable FIFA World Cup™ final stadium is quickly becoming a reality.

orting a new vision of city life

Located 15km north of central Doha, Lusail is a pioneer among cities. Every aspect of its planning, from its tram system and plentiful green spaces to this sustainability-focused arena, concentrates on human needs and environmental conservation. The result will be a city where 200,000 people live in harmony with the environment – and enjoy the legacy of this spectacular stadium. 

Once the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ is over, Lusail Stadium will be transformed into a community space including schools, shops, cafés, sporting facilities and health clinics. This multi-purpose community hub will allow people to find everything they need under one roof – the original roof of the football stadium.

To make way for these new amenities, most of the stadium’s 80,000 seats will be removed and donated to sporting projects, taking this arena’s extraordinary legacy – and a little bit of FIFA World Cup™ history – to locations around the globe.
