The stadium set to host the semi-finals and final match of the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar, will be built by a combination of Chinese and Qatari contractors.

Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has jointly awarded the contract for the Lusail Stadium’s construction to China Railway Construction Corporation and local firm HBK Contracting.

Designed by British architectural firm Foster + Partners, the stadium will be located in Lusail City, some 20 km north of Qatar’s capital, Doha.

The total cost of the contract to build the 80,000+-seater stadium is US$ 767 million, with completion due in 40 months.

Designed to utilise around 45,000 m2 of membrane, on 100,000 tonnes of steel framework, Lusail will be the world’s largest membrane-structure building.
