And all the conditions were ripe for the perfect opening of the “Lusail” stadium, in light of the great success achieved by the various stadiums in the tournament in hosting many tournaments over the past years, the most recent of which was the Arab Cup last December.
The organizers were keen to provide all the necessary elements for easy access to the “Lusail” stadium, which is located in the city of the same name, 20 kilometers from the capital, Doha.
A few weeks ago, the trial operation of the Lusail Tram began through 6 stations on the Orange Line, in preparation for hosting the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The stadium’s design was inspired by the interplay of light and shadow that characterizes the traditional Arab lighthouse or “lantern.” Its structure and facade also reflect the intricate inscriptions on food bowls, utensils and other pieces of art found throughout the Arab and Islamic world during the rise of civilization in the region.
After the 2022 World Cup, Lusail Stadium will be transformed into a community destination that includes schools, shops, cafes, sports facilities and medical clinics.
