Qatar welcomes thousands of football fans to inaugural match at 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™. 

Fans cheered a showdown between Saudi Professional League champions Al Hilal SFC and Egyptian Premier League winners Zamalek SC which ended with 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. Before the match, fans were treated to a spectacular set from inimitable Egyptian music artist Amr Diab.

The stadium is set in the smart city of Lusail, which is deemed Qatar’s largest sustainable real estate development, spanning 38 sq km 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 76 km of planned cycle and pedestrian tracks. What’s more, it is easily accessible by the Doha Metro (the Red line).

Commenting on the visitor experience, Maryam Al Maslmani, Public Relations & Communication Department at Qatar Tourism, said: “Lusail city is a treat for visitors, with the striking architecture that marks its horizons and the open spaces that offer a retreat from the city. We are thrilled that our visitors from the region can get a sneak peak at what Qatar has to offer and gear up for even more adventure and beautiful sightings later this year.”

Nearby attractions to Lusail Stadium include the recently opened Place Vendôme which infuses classic Parisienne architecture and is home to numerous dining and shopping boutiques. For those who want to enjoy the great outdoors, the Marina Promenade offers a chance to stroll, jog or cycle while taking in distinct landmarks such as the Raffles and Fairmont Doha, designed as traditional scimitar swords that pay homage to Qatari culture and the national seal. Also in the area, and currently in development, is the Lusail Boulevard which seamlessly blends a contemporary urban lifestyle with Qatar’s rich, cultural fabric. Spanning 1.3 km, Lusail Boulevard will present a mixed-use offering of upscale offices, residential units and retail spaces.

Families traveling to Qatar can head to the green landscapes of Crescent Park or Doha Festival City to jump on one of the many thrilling rides at Angry Birds World (true daredevils can hurtle into the air on the theme park’s 60 m slingshot). Set to open later this year and in time for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ is the Al Maha Island which will see Nammos beach club, numerous dining outlets and Lusail Winter Wonderland.  

Infrastructure and hospitality developments continue to take place at a rapid pace in Qatar and are set to continue beyond the mega sporting event of this year as Qatar Tourism works toward its longer term strategy of attracting six million visitors by 2030.
