The luxuriant Lusail Stadium (Qatar) which will be able to accommodate a crowd of 80,000 is sure to pack a punch. The arena will act as a platform to showcase the Arab culture to the world. It is in Lusail Stadium that the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ final will be staged, with billions around the globe watching the soccer spectacle.

Lusail Stadium is a facility under construction in Lusail, Qatar. Scheduled to open in May 2021, the new facility will host the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup™. Construction officially began on April 11th, 2017. Its final design was unveiled in December 2018.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup™ is scheduled to be the 22nd edition of the FIFA World Cup™, the quadrennial international men’s association football championship contested by the national teams of the member associations of FIFA. It is scheduled to take place in Qatar from November 21st to December 18th, 2022.

qatar2022.qa sources stated that the design of this spectacular stadium is eye-catching – inspired by the interplay of light and shadow that characterizes the fanar lantern. Its shape and façade is very striking and echo the intricate decorative motifs on bowls, vessels and other art pieces found across the Arab and Islamic world during the rise of civilization in the region.

The venue is a kind of magnum opus for Lusail – a newly-built, state-of-the-art metropolis, designed keeping in mind the residents’ interests. Lusail Stadium will further enrich Qatar’s history while paying ode to the rich and glorious past of the country and the region.

With work going on in full swing at the stadium, Qatar’s dream for a FIFA World Cup™ final venue which would remain etched in people’s memory forever is soon going to become a reality.

Lusail – which sits 15 km North of Central Doha – is a pioneer among cities. Every aspect of its planning, from its tram system and astonishing amount of verdant spaces to Lusail Stadium – which has accorded top priority to sustainability, focuses on human needs and environmental conservation. The result will be a City where 200,000 people will coexist in total harmony with the environment as well as Mother Nature – and bask in the glory of this scintillating stadium.

qatar2022.qa sources informed that once the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ is over, Lusail Stadium will be metamorphosed into a community space including schools, shops, cafés, sporting facilities and health clinics. This multifunctional community hub will act as a kind of one-stop source allowing people to find everything they need under one roof – the original roof of the football stadium.

Once the transformation takes place, 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 worldwide.
 

Mirroring Middle East

Lusail Stadium, in Qatar’s City of the future, comes armed with a cutting-edge design. With its original architectural vision designed by Foster + Partners, the spiffy arena and its sloping roof is sure to sweep fans off their feet during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. The jaw-dropping design is based upon bowls, vessels and art pieces used across the Middle East for centuries.

A glimpse of Lusail Stadium is sure to leave fans awe-struck – the sheer scale of the venue with its elegant, muted gold exterior which, with the passage of time, will inspire an image of aged metal handicrafts. The design of the facility has given enough attention to details reminding one of decorative wares from days gone by. The stadium bowl will boast a graceful, undulating trim which is a masterpiece and would make a master artisan proud.

The elaborate façade will be crowned with a roof that best demonstrate crème de la crème construction and engineering techniques. Manufactured from materials carefully chosen to provide enough shade, the roof will still allow just the right amount of sunlight to nourish the first-rate playing surface.

During night, an advanced lighting system will maximize the interaction of the light and openings in the façade, mimicking the welcoming glow of a fanar lantern for approaching fans and will make for a vision.

Once visitors get inside the arena, they will be greeted by the spectacular sight of 80,000 die-hard football fans. This wall of color will be accompanied by a wall of sound, with the venue’s roof and curved sides forming a cauldron where fans’ songs and frenzied cheers will reverberate to every ear and across the stadium.
 

Environment first

As befits a facility in Qatar’s futuristic Lusail City, forward planning and leaving zero carbon footprints are integral parts of this FIFA World Cup 2022™ arena.

Sustainability was topmost on the mind right from the conceptualization stage of Lusail Stadium and its site was accordingly chosen. Its position means fans can travel to attend fixtures via upgraded roads, the Doha Metro, shuttle buses from surrounding parks and ride sites and even on foot – Green modes of transport for this City of tomorrow.

As Lusail Stadium is all set to get complete by May 2021, extreme caution has been adopted to employ sustainable building practices and recycle construction waste whenever possible.

Materials have been carefully sourced to attune with environmental commitments, taking into consideration the manufacturing methods and future performance. Construction processes are also being supervised under strict vigil to keep pollution and contamination to the least possible.

Recycled water will be used to irrigate plants around the stadium, which will all be local varieties thus requiring little water. Setting up efficient water fixtures and leak detection systems throughout the venue complex conserves 40 percent more fresh water than in conventional stadia.

Even the arena’s roof has been designed keeping the environment in mind. A state-of-the-art material will allow enough light in for pitch growth while providing shade to reduce the burden on the stadium’s air conditioning.

Throughout the City, smart energy meters will help conserve energy and organic waste will be collected for biomass fuel. Green spaces will be found around every corner of the arena to facilitate good air quality and will also be soothing to the eyes.
