Qatar welcomes thousands of football fans to the inaugural match at the stadium set to host FIFA World Cup Final
Lusail stadium is set in the smart city of Lusail and minutes away from theme parks, shopping and dining destinations.
Football fans from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) became the first visitors to Qatar’s intricately designed Lusail Stadium yesterday, which officially opened its doors to stage the Lusail Super Cup 2022™.
At the start of the match, fans were treated to a spectacular set from inimitable Egyptian music artist Amr Diab. Fans cheered a showdown between Saudi Professional League champions Al Hilal SFC and Egyptian Premier League winners Zamalek SC, ending with a victorious win for Al Hilal on penalties at the new 80,000-seater venue. The stadium is one of the largest in the region and will host the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ Final this December.
The stadium is set in the smart city of Lusail, which is deemed Qatar’s largest sustainable real estate development, spanning 38km and four islands. It boasts twenty-two internationally ranked hotels and nineteen multi-purpose districts, which are designed for everything from living to working to entertaining.
Visitors can contribute to zero carbon travel to and around the city with Lusail’s new tram network and 76km of planned cycle and pedestrian tracks. What’s more, it is easily accessible by the Doha Metro (the Red line).Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
