On November 21, 2022, the 22nd edition of the World Cup will start in Qatar, the first to be held at this time of year, and will be held until December 18. Just today there are 365 days left until it begins and, on the occasion of this date, we review which stadiums will host the 64 stakes that will be needed to crown a selection.
Before club football returned, we met several countries that have already achieved their pass for the World Cup event, such as Germany, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, Spain, France, England, the Netherlands, Serbia, Switzerland and the host: Qatar. 13 of the 32 national teams that will participate, will play in the following stadiums:
The city of Jor will be present at the World Cup event with its 60,000-seat stadium, which was completed in May 2020 and opened in July of this year. Al Khor SC has already served as a venue there. The shape of the structure represents the Bedouin tents.
The only one in the municipality of Al Wakrah will be this stadium with a capacity for 40,000 spectators, one of the two with the least capacity of the entire World Cup event. Its construction ended in 2019 and Al-Wakrah SC has been in business since then. Its design is inspired by the sails of Dhow boats. It will have the option of being partially disassembled to reduce capacity and has a cooling system to lower the ambient and grass temperatures.
The first of Doha’s stadiums, in the municipality of Ad Dawhah, will have a capacity for 44,950 spectators. Its construction is scheduled to finish in February 2022 and, after the celebration of the World Cup, it will be dismantled to donate the materials to underdeveloped countries.
The other stadium in the same city and municipality will be the second with 40,000 spectators, the lowest capacity of the event. The inauguration was practically a month ago and its design is inspired by the gahfiyas.
The first of the three Rayán stadiums will have a capacity for 50,000 spectators. It was opened in 1976, rebuilt in 2014 and remodeled in 2017. All rounds, except the final, will have at least one match on this stage.
The second has a capacity for 45,350 spectators and was inaugurated in the summer of 2020. Its shape is inspired by that of an irregular diamond and its capacity will be reduced to 25,000 seats when the World Cup event ends.
The third and last stadium in Rayán was remodeled in 2019, after the original structure was demolished (2003) in 2015. 90% of the demolished material was used for artistic projects. Al-Rayyan SC acts as a venue in this place, with capacity for 40,740 spectators.
The title match will take place at this 94,500-seat stadium, which has cost more than US $ 2 billion. The construction will include a hotel inside, six bridges to avoid the water that surrounds the stadium and the option to dismantle part of it to reduce capacity for future occasions.
