Which stadium will host FIFA World Cup 2022 ?
The World Cup final will be held in the 80,000-capacity Lusail Iconic Stadium, which is 15 kilometers north of central Doha and the largest site for the competition. The largest stadium in Qatar and one of eight being renovated for the 2022 FIFA World Cup is the Lusail Stadium, which is controlled by the Qatar Football Association.
The Saudi-Egyptian Super Cup, which was played on September 9, 2022, at the Lusail Stadium served as a rehearsal for the World Cup finals. The stadium’s construction, which was done especially for the 2022 World Cup, started in 2017 and ended in April 2021.
According to the Qatari World Cup organizers, Lusail Stadium is exceptional in that it has a carbon-neutral footprint. According to the architectural firm Fosters + Partners, this is due to energy-efficient elements including solar panels for power and ecologically friendly cooling technology.
