The latest stadium designed to host the 2022 World Cup in Quatar is located in Al Khor City and it is entitled the Al Bayt Stadium with the Al Bayt district surrounding it with landscaped paths, retail spaces, restaurants as well as tracks for horse riding, cycling and jogging.

The pictures seen here were released by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy of Quatar and the architecture was designed by an unnamed group with Dar Al Handasa as design consultants. The stadium is inspired from the history of Quatar with a black and white tent similar to the ones used by the nomads in the region as a symbol of hospitality for the travelers.

The stadium will have 60000 seats for the world cup, but only 32000 seats will remain after the tournament, with the removed seats planned to be donated to other countries. The project is planned to be completed in 2018 and it will incorporate elements that meet the LEED and GSAS sustainability standards.
