Sports City Stadium is a proposed football stadium which will be built in Doha, Qatar.[1]

DescriptionEdit

The stadium was designed by the architecture firm MEIS Architects. It should hold 49,000 seats and its construction costs $1.6 billion.[1]

The large structure is planned to also house a convention center, a water park, a mall-in-the-sky, a luxury hotel, a cultural center, a sports museum, an amphitheatre, and a business center.[1]

The inspiration for the design comes from the bedouin tents. The roof is partially retractable.[1]

After the World Cup, it is the only stadium in Qatar which seating capacity will remain unchanged.[2]

The energy to power the building is sun-generated on the roof. A complex cooling system is planned for the stadium's spectators and players. The building is zero-carbon emissions proof.[3]

World cup matches hostedEdit

The stadium will host group matches, and the 3rd place playoff.[4]
