In Qatar, the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM preparations have already begun. All eyes are on this Gulf country as the event draws near. For the crucial games, eight brand-new stadiums with distinctive and intriguing designs have been built. Here is our guide to Qatar’s World Cup venues, whether you intend to visit the country or simply watch the action on television.

Lusail Stadium

The final will be played at the iconic Lusail Stadium, which has a seating capacity of 80,000. About 15 kilometres north of Doha, the country’s capital, is the planned metropolis of Lusail. One of the most recognisable landmarks in this new metropolis will be the stadium. The style pays homage to the past. The ornate designs that are seen on its golden façade have long been recognised as typical Arab adornments. Other notable works by architects Foster and Partners include the Millau Viaduct, Beijing Airport, and The Gherkin in London. Here, they have built a magnificent stadium that, on a vast scale, resembles the light and shadow of a lantern.
