Qatar is gearing up for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in a grand way. The country which has already started making preparations to host the games in 2022 just unveiled detailed plans for their brand new stadiums, in addition to the two existing stadiums that will provide spectators with a new way of experiencing all the action.

Under its proposal to FIFA, Qatar will build 9 new stadiums and renovate 3, with the 12 venues divided among 7 host cities. The 7 host cities are Al-Daayen, Al-Khor, Al-Rayyan, Al-Shamal, Al-Wakrah, Doha and Umm Slal. After the Cup it is planned to dismantle parts of the stadiums and send them to developing countries to make 22 new climate controlled stadiums. Construction and renovation costs of some $3bn were projected in Qatar's bid document.

Conceptualized in Germany by AS&P, each of the stadiums will be built to exceed environmental efficiency standards and be easily accessible by public transportation from New Doha International Airport, all host cities, hotels, FIFA Fan Fests and all FIFA Fan Zones, including water taxi parking.

Solar Thermal Collectors and PV panels will also be used to harness the sun’s energy, in turn powering absorption chilling systems. Air handling systems will re-circulate the air throughout the stadium, ensuring everyone is comfortable in the formidable desert heat. An integrated Building Management System will monitor the various different elements of each stadium, and each of the seats as well as the field will be shaded and protected from direct sun light.
