The sleek and bold design of this arena will leave football fans stunned
Lusail Stadium hosted the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Final – an event that secured its place in football and architectural history. Immense yet exquisite, the scale and splendour of this arena are a wonder, built to lie in harmony with its surroundings.
The design reflects the hand-crafted bowls found all across the Arab and Islamic world during the rise of civilisation, while interplays of light mirror the fanar lanterns of the region. With the passing of time, the golden exterior will fade replicating aged metal handicrafts to create a venue alive with cultural character.
On 18 December 2022, 88,000+ fans came together here for the greatest FIFA World Cup™ Final ever. Afterwards, and in keeping with Qatar’s dedication to sustainable development, Lusail Stadium will be transformed into a community space of schools, shops, cafés, sporting facilities and health clinics. This is the amazing we’ve all been waiting for – the here, the now and the future.
