With still little word on the Qualification Process, Qatar 2022 has confirmed the completion of the Education City Stadium, the third tournament venue for the next edition of the FIFA World Cup to be ready.
The 40,000 venue is scheduled to host to matches up to the quarter-final stage of the tournament in two-years time.
The stadium is based in the Al Rayyan region of Doha, which organizers say forms part of the Education City’s education, research and innovation hub.
Following the tournament the venue will be reduced by half, with 20,000 seats donated to help build stadiums in developing countries.
"The eyes of the world will be on this stadium when it hosts matches as the World Cup comes to Qatar and the region in 2022, but its value will extend far beyond the tournament," said Sheikha Hind bint Hamad Al Thani, vice-chair and chief executive of the Qatar Foundation.
