The Lusail Super Cup between the champions of Saudi Arabia and Egypt will be played on Friday, September 9, at the 80,000-seat Lusail Stadium, embodying Qatar's ambition, and the country's enthusiasm for promoting Arab culture around the world.

After Khalifa International, Al Janoub, Education City, Ahmad Bin Ali, Al Thumama, Al Bayt, and Stadium 974, Lusail will be the eighth and final FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM tournament venue to be announced.

The biggest stadium in Qatar, Lusail Stadium, will host games throughout this year's World Cup, including the championship game on December 18, which also happens to be Qatar National Day.

The magnificent location will serve as the focal point of Lusail, a recently constructed, cutting-edge metropolis created with the requirements of its citizens in mind. The stadium adds a new chapter to Qatar's history while honoring its and the region's rich past.

1. Both modern and traditional

The design of Lusail, which is appropriately futuristic, is motivated by the contrast between light and shadow that defines the Fanar lantern. Intricate artistic designs on bowls and other vessels typical of the golden period of art and craftsmanship in the Arab and Islamic world are echoed in the stadium's shape and front.

2. Fit for a final

In comparison to other World Cup venues in Qatar 2022, Lusail will host ten games. It will host knockout matches in the round of 16, quarterfinals, semifinals, and final in along with the six group stage games. On November 22, the Group C match between Argentina and Saudi Arabia will be played at Lusail for the first time.

3. Community hub

Numerous public amenities will be built around the stadium, including housing, retail stores, restaurants, health care facilities, and schools. The moveable upper tier will be put to new use after the World Cup, and the seats will be given to a neighborhood without adequate sporting facilities.

4. Sustainable stadium in a sustainable city

Wastewater recycling techniques and ecological building methods were used in the development of Lusail. By using reclaimed water to irrigate plants surrounding the venue, the facility conserved 40% more water than typical stadium developments. The roof, which is made of a cutting-edge substance called Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), shields the stadium from heated winds, keeps out dust, lets in enough light for the pitch to develop, and provides shade to lessen the strain on the cooling system. Lusail was awarded a five-star grade for Design & Build and Construction under the Global Sustainability Assessment System as a result of these eco-friendly construction techniques.

5. Close to public transport

From 11 November to 23 December 2022, Hayya Card holders will be able to use Qatar's cutting-edge public transportation network for free. The Lusail QNB Station on the Red Line, which is close to the stadium, will serve as the entrance point for spectators utilizing the Doha Metro. The Al Khor Expressway will provide access to the stadium for motorists. Numerous park and ride facilities will be located adjacent to the stadium. After 2022, users of the Lusail Light Rail Tram will be able to get to the facility.
