TOURNAMENT MODE

The Education City Stadium was the third match-ready FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ venue, with its official completion marked with a special TV programme. The stadium is set to host matches up to and including the quarter-finals stage during Qatar 2022.

DESIGN & SUSTAINABILITY

Education City Stadium has a design that draws on the rich history of Islamic architecture, blending it with striking modernity. The façade features triangles that form complex, diamond-esque geometrical patterns, appearing to change colour with the sun's movement across the sky. By night, the façade puts on a colourful light show, making it even more eye-catching.

Like diamonds, the stadium's design represents quality, durability and resilience, and will become something to be treasured – both for the memories it holds and its future value to the country and region.

As with all FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ stadiums, advanced cooling technologies ensure comfortable temperatures year-round for players and fans, while access for fans with disabilities is excellent. Those looking for even more comfort can enjoy the game from hospitality and VIP areas.

As they arrive, fans will see many green spaces and state-of-the-art amenities surrounding the venue, all built with an eye on sustainability and the future. Facilities include football training pitches, a golf course and shops.

The landscape around Education City Stadium is dotted with leading universities, where cutting-edge research is conducted and academics inspire their students to be at their best. This whole area, the home of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, buzzes with invention and a determination to make the FIFA World Cup 2022™ a catalyst for social and human development.

TRANSPORT

Fans will be able to reach the venue using the Doha Metro Green Line. Education City Station is located just 500 meters from the stadium.

LEGACY

The stadium’s most direct contribution to international development will come after it has hosted matches through to the quarter-finals stage of the tournament. The arena's capacity will be reduced by half and 20,000 seats will be donated to build stadiums in developing countries, helping cultivate a passion for the game around the globe.
