The venue, in addition to being the largest for the first cup to be played in the Gulf, will also become the "central hub of a new metropolis called Lusail City," explains FIFA.

Once the World Cup ends, according to the organization, the infrastructure will be transformed into a space for community use that has schools, health centers, shops, sports facilities and cafeterias.

Most of the seats, meanwhile, are going to be dismantled and donated to other countries.


The design of the stadium, one of eight in which the World Cup matches will be played, includes elements linked to traditional Arab and Islamic culture.

The final of the World Cup in Qatar, steps away from Christmas

With the decision that the World Cup would be played in the months of November and December, the final is just a few days before Christmas.

One of the reasons that made the competition unfeasible in June and July, as is tradition, are the temperatures.

For December, according to the forecast of the World Meteorological Organization, the maximum average will reach 24.1 degrees Celsius and the minimum average will reach 15 degrees Celsius, according to the calculation made based on the temperatures of the period 1962-1992.
