A look at FIFA World Cup 2022 Stadium

Six months away from the FIFA World Cup 2022 and Qatar has its stadiums ready.

Qatar has almost become a byword for the scorching heat but some fans will still be bringing sweaters into the stadium because of the state-of-the-art air conditioning that its mastermind says will become the norm for major sporting events.

Most of the stadiums will be air-conditioned, let’s take a look at the stadium that will host FIFA World Cup 2022 from November 21 to December 18 this year.

1. Lusail Iconic Stadium

Qatar’s largest stadium will host the final on December 18 and among other matches, the first semifinal. Built in Lusail, a planned city with a population of 200,000 located 15 kilometers north of central Doha, there are plans to turn the stadium into a community center after the World Cup, with most of its seats moved and donated elsewhere.

2. Al-Bayt Stadium

The venue for the group stage match between Spain and Germany, as well as the second semifinal, was built in the form of a Bedouin tent. There are plans to clear the top tier after the competition. Located on Qatar’s northeast coast, about 35 kilometers from the capital Doha, it is therefore out of reach of the capital’s metro system, making it one of the more difficult places to access for supporters.

3. Education City Stadium

Located between the university campuses in Al Rayyan, just west of Doha, and reachable by metro, the stadium will host one of the quarter-finals. Its capacity will be reduced by half after the tournament with the seat being donated to developing countries.

4. Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium

Home of one of Qatar’s most successful clubs, Al Rayyan, the stadium has been built on the site of the old site of the same name and is one metro stop outside the nearest Education City. Located at the meeting point of the city with the desert, its capacity will also be reduced by half after the tournament.

5. Khalifa International Stadium

Built in 1976, it is the only venue that existed before Qatar was awarded the World Cup, although it has since been changed. Hosted the 2011 Asian Cup final as well as the 2019 Club World Cup final between Liverpool and Flamengo. It will host England’s opening day match with Iran.

6. Al Thumama Stadium

Located south of central Doha, close to the city’s Hamad International Airport, the stadium is built in the shape of the gahfiya, the traditional hat worn by men throughout West Asia. It will host the tournament’s opening match between Senegal and the Netherlands as well as one of the quarter-finals. Its capacity will be reduced to 20,000 after the World Cup.

7. Stadium 974

Built from shipping containers on the waterfront of Doha, the pop-up stadium will be completely demolished after the World Cup. The number 974 is the international dialing code for Qatar but also represents the number of containers used for the construction of the stadium.

8. Al Janoub Stadium

Located south of Doha in the city of Al Wakrah, the stadium’s design was inspired by the traditional boats used for diving and pearl fishing.
