Doha, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st Oct, 2021 ) :Work on Qatar's Lusail Stadium, which will host the 2022 World Cup final, is nearly complete, an official said on Thursday, with only systems checks and commissions left to tackle.
"We are at approximately 98.5 percent completion," Tamim El Abed, project manager for the stadium, told AFP in an interview.
"The structural works, the civil works, the steel works, the roof works are all 100 percent complete.
"The remaining 1.5 percent is the testing and commissioning of the multiple systems needed for the operation of the building." El Abed said that the stadium can host 85,000 or 86,000 spectators.
"Eighty thousand of those would have a totally unobstructed view of the field of play," he said.
Lusail was designed to mimmick the glow of a lantern, with openings in its curved steel exterior facade.
It has 3,354 rooms and 40 gate entrances, according to El Abed.
"The stands and the terraces were designed in a permanent fashion, but there is a plan possibly for reuse of the interior spaces post-World Cup," he added.
