The Education City stadium in Qatar is set to host the FIFA World Cup 2022 matches up to the quarter-finals stage.
beIN Sports has announced that it will broadcast the completion of the third 2022 FIFA World Cup stadium (Education City stadium) with a dedicated programme and a host of exclusive interviews on Monday, 15 June at 19:00 Mecca Time (GMT +3).
The stadium’s seating capacity during the tournament will be 40,000 but will be reduced to 20,000 after the completion of the tournament following the removal of the modular upper tier. The excess seats will then be donated to countries which lack sporting infrastructure.
The English studio coverage will be presented by Andy Kerr on beIN Sports HD11 and Arabic studio coverage will be presented by Mohamed Saadon Al Kuwari and broadcast on beIN Sports News channel, Free to Air (FTA) channel and beIN Sports HD1.
The Education City stadium becomes the third tournament-ready venue for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 following the successful redevelopment of Khalifa International Stadium in 2017 and the inauguration of Al Janoub Stadium last year. The Al Rayyan and Al Bayt stadiums are also expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
Known as the country’s ‘diamond in the desert’, the façade of the Education City stadium features triangles that form complex, diamond-like geometrical patterns which appear to change colour with the sun’s movement across the sky. Like diamonds, the stadium’s design represents quality, durability, and resilience – and will become something to be treasured, both for the memories it holds and its future value to the country.
