Lusail Stadium Sustainability

As befits a stadium in Qatar's futuristic Lusail City, forward planning and care for the environment are integral parts of this FIFA World Cup 2022™ arena.

Sustainability work started the moment Lusail Stadium was first envisaged and its location was chosen. Its position means fans can travel to matches via upgraded roads, the Doha Metro, shuttle buses from surrounding park & ride sites and even by foot – all suitably green methods of transport for this city of tomorrow.

Saving energy at every opportunity

As Lusail Stadium takes shape in the months and years ahead, we will continue to employ sustainable building practices and recycle construction waste whenever possible. 

Materials are carefully sourced to align with our environmental commitments; considering both their manufacturing methods and future performance. Construction processes are also stringently monitored to minimise pollution and contamination. 

Recycled water will be used to irrigate plants around the stadium, which will all be local varieties requiring little water. Installing efficient water fixtures and leak detection systems throughout the stadium complex conserves 40% more fresh water than in conventional stadiums. 

Even the arena's roof has been designed with 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.

Measures such as these will help Lusail Stadium to achieve 4-star Global Sustainability Assessment System certification – and become an arena to usher in a new age of environmental responsibility.

A green stadium in a green city

The city of Lusail itself has been designed to minimise its impact on the environment – and maximise convenience for residents and visitors.

Each neighbourhood will have its own essential amenities within walking distance. Meanwhile, larger facilities, such as shopping centres, will be located close to green transport links, encouraging people to use the extensive public transport network. 

Throughout the city, smart energy meters will conserve energy and organic waste will be collected for biomass fuel. Green spaces will be found around every corner to actively improve the air quality.

A sustainable legacy

Situated just north of Doha's many football clubs, Lusail will not need its own football stadium after 2022. Instead, under current plans for the arena, it will become a community hub of schools, shops, health clinics and sporting facilities, all within the original exterior of the stadium and under the original roof.

However, other places do need more sporting infrastructure, so most of the stadium's 80,000 seats will be removed and donated to sporting projects far and wide – a fittingly efficient use of materials from this most sustainable of stadiums.
