The marvellous Lusail Stadium holds a capacity of 80,000 seats and is intricately designed, combining heritage and futuristic aspects.
The stadium's exterior presents spectacular aesthetics with a play of lights and shadows inspired by the traditional Fanar Lantern (also known as 'Fanoos'). It gets its shape and intricacy from other lifestyle items rooted in the Arab and Islamic world, such as bowls & vessels.
A noteworthy fact about the stadium is that the seats will be dismantled and donated upon completion of the tournament to support sports in developing countries. The space around would be converted into a community hub.
While the stadium alone is mesmerising, the newly built city around it also has much to offer.
