Lusail Iconic Stadium or Lusail International Stadium is a football stadium in Lusail, Qatar. The stadium will host the final game of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The Lusail Stadium, owned by the Qatar Football Association, is the biggest stadium in Qatar and one of eight stadiums being converted for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar. Located 15km north of central Doha, Lusail is a pioneer among cities. Every aspect of its planning, from its tram system and plentiful green spaces to this sustainability-focused arena, concentrates on human needs and environmental conservation. The result will be a city where 200,000 people live in harmony with the environment – and enjoy the legacy of this spectacular stadium.
The stadium was designed by British firm Foster + Partners, and Populous, supported by MANICA Architecture. The stadium has a capacity of 80,000 seats. Like the other stadiums planned for the 2022 World Cup, the Lusail Stadium will be cooled using solar power and have a zero carbon footprint.
Construction began on 11 April 2017. The end of construction of the Stadium was originally scheduled for 2020. It was then to host three friendly matches until the 2022 World Cup, but as the completion of the stadium was postponed, it will subsequently host 10 games including the final.
