Lusail Stadium is located in Lusail City, 15km away from Doha Center. It shall have a maximum capacity of 89,000 seats during the Tournament. The stadium will host the opening and closing ceremony and the final match of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
During the design phase, the Legacy and Tournament designs have been considered together to try to gain the maximum advantage for the future Legacy design wherever possible which will have little or no impact on the Tournament design.
The intended Legacy design will be a multi-purpose facility comprising schools including KG, Primary and Secondary schools, residential accommodations, medical clinics, supporting convenience retail, and legacy memorabilia and exhibition spaces, and car parking. The main MEP space requirements remain unchanged in the Legacy from the tournament mode design.
The Tournament ready stadium design will be considerate of Legacy requirements and facilitate conversion strategies, through careful selection of construction methods, materials, and systems that enable adaptation and conversion in to a Legacy mode economically and with minimal conversion time.
The Research Division of Structure has performed structural and architectural design services in both modes, Tournament and Legacy. The work scope includes the structural design services for the steel vessel structure, cable net roofing system and architectural design services for the legacy conversation.
