Located in the heart of Education City – a knowledge center nurturing tomorrow’s leaders – the stadium will host up to the quarter-finals stage during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. It is destined to serve the sustainable, green, and healthy living needs of the future. Dubbed the “Diamond in the Desert” owing to its façade, Education City Stadium features triangles that form complex, diamond-esque geometrical patterns, appearing to change color with the sun's movement across the sky. By night, the façade puts on a colorful light show, making it even more eye-catching.
