TOURNAMNT MODE

The Lusail Stadium will host the final match of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™, embodying Qatar's ambition and its passion for sharing Arab culture with the world. It's here that the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ final will be staged, with billions around the globe watching on.

DESIGN & SUSTAINABILITY

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, vessels and other art pieces found across the Arab and Islamic world during the rise of civilisation in the region.

Crowning the elaborate stadium façade will be a roof that represents the leading edge in engineering and construction techniques. Manufactured from materials carefully chosen to provide shade, the roof will still admit just the right amount of sunlight to nourish the first-rate playing surface.

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

Once inside the stadium, visitors will be greeted by the spectacular sight of 80,000 passionate football fans. This wall of colour will be accompanied by a wall of sound, with the arena's roof and curved sides forming a cauldron where fans' songs and cheers will reverberate to every ear.

LEGACY

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.

During the conversion, 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.
