Eight top-level World Cup Stadiums in Qatar
1. World Cup Stadiums in Qatar-Lusai Stadium
Lusail Stadium is located in the Lusail New District, about 15 kilometers north of Doha, the capital of Qatar, where the opening ceremony, opening match, finals, and closing ceremonies will be held. As the single cable-net roof building with the largest span and the most considerable cantilever distance in the same type of cable-net system in the world, it is also the largest venue of this World Cup, with a capacity of 80,000 people.
The shape of Lusail Stadium is based on bowls, vessels, and artwork used throughout the Middle East for centuries. It has a suitably futuristic design, featuring sleek, adventurous shapes and a pitched roof. Above the elaborate stadium exterior wall will be a roof representing the frontiers of Engineering and Construction Technology. The top is made of carefully selected materials to provide shade but will still receive just the right amount of sunlight to nourish a superb playing field. At night the lighting system will maximize the interplay of light and openings in the exterior wall, mimicking the welcome glow of fanned lanterns for approaching fans.
2. World Cup Stadiums in Qatar – Stadium 974
It will be the first disassembled stadium in the history of the FIFA World Cup™, with a capacity of 40,000 people being made from shipping containers and modular steel structure. Stadium 974 is made from 974 shipping containers and will be completely dismantled and recycled after the game, with parts repurposed into stadiums worldwide. Sitting on Doha’s waterfront, the stadium’s design harnesses natural winds rather than cooling techniques, allowing it to use nearly 40 percent less water. “974” is also the country code for international calls in Qatar.
Stadium 974 is located in Ras Abu Abadi and can accommodate 40,000 spectators. Its ingenious conception and post-match materials reuse arrangement set a benchmark in constructing large-scale “green” stadiums.

Inspired by the Bedouin tents (Bayt al sha’ar) used by nomadic peoples from the ancient Middle East, Dar Al-Handasah’s design for Al Bayt Stadium celebrates the history of Qatar and its people. “Bedouin” is a transliteration of Arabic, meaning nomads on the wasteland, people who live by water and grass.
The Albert Stadium, located in (Har) Al Khor, 35 kilometers north of Doha, will host nine 2022 World Cup matches, including the opening ceremony on November 21, 2022. The work process of the Albert Stadium lasted about five years, starting from the end of 2015 to the beginning of 2020. The opening ceremony coincided with National Sports Day celebrated in Qatar. The stadium has a capacity of 60,000 people and was built as a Bedouin tent.
4. Al Thumama Stadium

Previous games included quarter-finals. The circular shape of the stadium is reminiscent of the Gahfiya, a braided headdress worn by men and boys throughout West Asia. In addition, a constant temperature of 18C can be maintained throughout the stadium.

The Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium is located in Rayan and has a capacity of 40,000 people. In the “2020 Best Stadium” released by StadiumDB, a world-renowned professional stadium data website, the Ahmed Ben Ali Stadium ranked third in the world.
