Dubbed the “Diamond in the Desert,” the 40,000-seat ground is one of eight stadiums to be used in the competition.
The stadium features a triangular-design with complex, diamond-like patterns and, as the sun moves across the sky, the façade will appear to change color.
“What makes this very unique, which is also an important part of our legacy is its location in the heart of Education City,” said Nasser Al Khater, the chief executive of Qatar’s 2022 World Cup organizing committee.
“Education City has a lot of leading institutions, leading universities, schools and this will be a stadium that they can use as recreational and sporting facilities after the World Cup.”
The stadium is the first from Qatar 2022 to receive five stars from the Global Sustainability Assessment System.
