Last month, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) first unveiled design renderings from British design firm Foster + Partners, and is said to be inspired by Arab architecture and the region’s craftsmanship traditions.

Designs were recently released for the final venue of the 2022 World Cup, hosted by Qatar. Lusail Stadium, with a capacity of 80,000, will be the largest of the tournament, hosting the opening and closing matches.

Construction is already heavily underway, and in June, a project update was released touting the completion of the substructure and progress on the concrete superstructure and infrastructure.

Construction is being led by a joint venture of Qatari firm HBK Contracting Company and China Railway Construction Corporation.

"It has now been eight years since we won the rights to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup and we told the world to expect amazing. With this stunning design of our showpiece stadium, I am proud today to once again be delivering on that promise," SC Secretary-General Hassan al-Thawadi said of the design launch.

"The new stadium is a nod to our past and a symbol of an exciting future. On the very same land as the home of our nation's founder, it sits at the heart of a brand new city," al-Thawadi added.

Lusail is the eighth and final stadium slated for the tournament, with the costs for all stadiums totaling around $7 billion. Construction for this stadium is slated for completion in 2020.

Al-Thawadi said that officials are estimating between 1.2 and 1.7 million people in attendance for the tournament, which kicks off Nov. 21, 2022.

After the World Cup, Lusail Stadium will be transformed into a community space with schools, retail, restaurants, sports facilities and health clinics. Much of the seating will be removed and donated to other sporting event projects worldwide.
