The seventh stadium, Ras Al Aboud Stadium, will host the first matches of the FIFA Arab Cup from November 30 to December 18. The stadium will be inaugurated before that. The FIFA Arab Cup will be played in six stadiums prepared for the FIFA World Cup. Lucille Stadium will witness a total of 10 World Cup matches, including the final.
All the stadiums are close by
The distance between the stadiums where the FIFA World Cup usually takes place is often large. Spectators and players often arrived by air, from one stadium to another. But the highlight of the Qatar World Cup is that all the stadiums are located close together. The maximum distance between the two stadiums is only 75 km. This will ensure that spectators arriving at the Qatar World Cup do not have to change their place of residence for each match. You can stay at the place of residence until the end of the competition. This is most useful for players. This will help them get enough rest and training between matches.
