Spanish studio Fenwick-Iribarren Architects has unveiled the Education City Stadium near Doha, which is the third and largest of the venues for the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar to be completed so far.

Nicknamed the “Diamond in the Desert” due to its distinctive cladding, the 45,350-seater stadium is one of eight venues that will host matches during the football tournament, which is due to take place in the Middle Eastern country in 2022.

Education City Stadium is the third venue that has been completed for the event, following the upgrade of the Khalifa International Stadium in Doha and the opening of the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.
