It is not surprising that the architecture of the stadium, which will be located in the center of Lusail, is largely the degree is based on the Arabic style and national culture. Outwardly, the building resembles a deep golden bowl filled with sand – these have been created by local craftsmen for centuries. Traditional Arabic lanterns are used for the decor of Lusail Stadium.

The stadium itself will become a multifunctional community center: educational institutions, shops, cafes, sports facilities, a health center and much more will be located here.
