Your guide to Qatar’s eight sights

The eight stadiums that will host the Qatar 2022 World Cup are primed and ready. They are eye-catching, to say the least.

One of the stadiums is made of shipping containers while another is meant to look like a traditional Middle Eastern headgear.

While notable in design, the eight venues – the fewest since the 1978 16-team World Cup in Argentina – are a logistical relief for fans attending arguably the most controversial World Cup in history. all the time.

Indeed, the eight stadiums are all within 21 miles of central Doha and will be linked by a metro and tram system, allowing more than one game to be watched on the same day.

Some grounds are powered by solar farms and equipped with cooling systems to combat the heat, while others have outdoor air conditioning. And once the tournament is over and over a few days before Christmas, only one stadium will host a football team: the Khalifia International Stadium. The others will either be completely dismantled (in the 974 stadium cast) or reduced in capacity and converted into hotels, community spaces or smaller sports facilities.

How many stadiums will host the event?

Eight stadiums will host the 32 teams from the opening match on November 20 to the final on December 18.

The tournament will kick off at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, while the finalists will travel to Doha a month later to play at Lusail Stadium.
