Milestone match to be held at Lusail Stadium on 9 September
Doha, 22nd August: The Lusail Super Cup Local Organising Committee has announced Qatari Diar as the Presenting Partner for the Lusail Super Cup, which will be held at Lusail Stadium on Friday 9 September.
The Lusail Super Cup will be contested by the champions of Saudi Arabia and Egypt at the 80,000-capacity venue, which will also host the FIFA World Cup™ final
later this year. Qatari Diar’s involvement in the event was announced during a press conference at Al Bidda Tower.
Hassan Al Kuwari, Marketing Director, FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 LLC, said: “We are delighted to partner with Qatari Diar to stage the Lusail Super Cup at Lusail
Stadium. The development of Lusail City is one of Qatar’s major achievements and we are very proud to be hosting huge matches in this location. We are also very excited to be staging FIFA World Cup matches in Lusail later this year, including the final on
Qatar National Day.”
Ahmed Al Sada, Director – CEO Office and Public Relations, Qatari Diar, said: “Staging the Lusail Super Cup will be yet another proud moment in the story of
Lusail City, which is one of the fastest-growing and most sustainable cities in the world. Everyone in Qatar and across the region is eagerly awaiting the FIFA World Cup and we are incredibly proud that Lusail City and Lusail Stadium will play a prominent
role during the tournament as we welcome fans from across the globe.”
Lusail Stadium is Qatar’s biggest FIFA World Cup™ tournament venue. It will host ten matches during Qatar 2022, starting with Argentina versus Saudi Arabia
on 22 November and culminating with the final on 18 December. The stadium boasts a host of sustainability features, including a roof made from PTFE that protects the venue from warm wind, keeps out dust and allows in enough light for the pitch to grow while
providing shade to reduce the burden on the stadium’s air conditioning. Last week, Lusail Stadium achieved a five-star Global Sustainability Assessment System rating for its design and build and a Class A* rating for construction management.
Lusail City is Qatari Diar’s flagship project and spans 38,000,000m². It is the largest single development in the country’s history and embodies the goals
of Qatar National Vision 2030, which aims to develop a knowledge economy and reduce reliance on hydrocarbons.
More than 200,000 residents will eventually live in Lusail, with 170,000 people expected to work in the city’s 19 districts, which will encompass residential,
commercial, hospitality and retail opportunities, along with community needs, like schools, healthcare facilities, mosques, sporting facilities, entertainment and shopping areas. There will also be a new financial district, two golf courses, beaches and a
marina to host 1,800 boats and yachts.
