The Qatar World Cup this winter is approaching us fast. However, in a nation known about so little by so many, particularly in terms of football. In this thread I will take you through each of the stadiums of the Qatar World Cup, discussing their inspiration and other factors, to show why this year's World Cup will be one of immense and beautiful scenery.

Lusail Stadium

Perhaps the most stunning stadium of them all, Lusail Stadium, located in Lusail, has a grand capacity of 80,000 seats. The stadium was only constructed in 2021, with its use being intended solely for the international competition. The final of the competition is set to be held at this venue, with facilities such as restaurants and shops scattered around it to facilitate the crowds. After the World Cup, the stadium will become a community hub, hosting a variety of shops and hospitality services, fitting in with its current surroundings.

The Education City Stadium is located in a district of Doha filled with academic facilities and is easily accessible via the metro line running through the city. The stadium has a capacity of 45,350 seats and can be found only 7KM away from the centre of the city. This stadium arrays beautiful colours on matchday, beaming out into its surroundings and making it a place that is well worth the visit.

Khalifa International

The Khalifa International Stadium is the oldest out of all the venues, constructed in 1976, before being more recently renovated to hold a capacity of 40,000 seats. The stadium is located in the Al Waab district of Doha and is surrounded by shopping facilities. Furthermore, it is found within the 'Aspire Zone', a sporting region of Doha, home to the Aspire Academy and infamous Aspetar Sports Hospital. The stadium shouldn't be a difficult one to find, as adjacent to the structure is the Torch Hotel, a large skyscraper standing solely in the district.

Al THUMAMA 2.0.jpg

Al Thumama Stadium
The Al Thumama Stadium is the venue that will host the quarter-finals of the competition. The design of the beautiful stadium is based on the Gahfiya, a traditional woven cap worn by men and boys in the Middle East. It is suggested that by symbolising the youth of some of the boys who may wear the hat, Qatar is highlighting its recent emergence into the football world. The stadium has a capacity of 40,000 seats and is well worth a visit when attending the competition.

Ras Abu Abo

The Ras Abu Aboud Stadium has a capacity of 40,000 seats within its unique structure. It's often referred to as the 974 stadium, symbolising Qatar's +974 dialing code but also the number of shipping containers used within its structure. The stadium amplifies Qatar's intention to push sustainability within the competition, as it recycles the old shipping containers.

l Rayyan Stadium

Located on the outskirts of Doha, the Al Rayyan also aims to reflect Qatari tradition with its beaming colours alongside the sand-dune-like patterns around the stadium, which portrays the landscape surrounding the city. The stadium has a capacity of 40,740 seats and is home to Al-Rayyan SC, one of the more notable teams within Qatar's native league.

Al Janoub Sta

Located in Al Wakrah, this 40,000 seat capacity stadium is another one of the more uniquely designed stadiums hosting games in the 2022 World Cup. The design of the stadium is based on the pearl-diving that, historically, would commonly occur in the area. The structure is designed to look like a Dhow, a traditional boat that Qataris would use when pearl-diving. This stadium is one that I strongly recommend visiting, with plans to reduce its size after the competition, with seats being donated to football projects abroad.

Al Ba

The final stadium of the World Cup, and the second largest with a capacity of 60,000 seats, is the Al Bayt Stadium. This stadium is located furthest away from the other venues, as it is found in Al Khor, a city located 40 minutes drive north of Doha. The stadium is designed from the Bayt al Sha'ar, a traditional tent used by the nomadic people of Qatar. After the competition, the stadium reduced in size, with much of its materials being donated to other countries or recycled for the 2030 Asian Games, which means that this incredibly designed stadium is one to see before it goes.

The Qatar World Cup is a competition that will be notable in the history books, it's taking place mid-season, in the winter. Furthermore, the venues in which the competition is being held are all beautifully designed to maximise the experience of fans and tourists. Qatar also is a country with stunning landscapes and scenery, meaning it is definitely worth visiting to watch the World Cup and explore the nation during your time visiting.

This World Cup will be one to remember, get those tickets booked!
