Qatar just released a video of the stunning Al Bayt Stadium slated for construction in Al Khor City, just 30 miles north of Doha. The 60,000-seater Al Bayt Stadium was modeled after black-and-white tents traditionally used by nomadic people in Qatar. The stadium is expected to be complete by 2018 in time for the 2022 World Cup.
Despite being accused of corruption earlier in June, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) released a video of the new host venue planned for the 2022 tournament.
The stadium has a detachable upper tier that allows it to downsize in capacity.
After removing the tier, the stadium will turn into a 32,000-seater after the World Cup.
The removed seats will be donated to other countries.
Al Bayt Stadium will be used as a venue for the semi-finals while three more stadiums are expected to break ground by the end of this year.
FIFA requires a minimum of eight stadiums for World Cup host countries, but Qatar plans to build a total of 10 stadiums before the tournament in 2022.
