These stadiums will be zero carbon emitting and climate controlled. Appropriate measures will be taken to reduce solar radiation and warm winds.

FIFA World Cup is usually held in Europe’s off-season, which is during June and July. At this time day temperature in Qatar will be more than 40 degrees Celsius. Adequate measures to reduce the temperature inside the stadium would help players and spectators. Organizers at Qatar intend to do just that.

After the event, parts of the stadiums would be dismantled and sent to developing nations to build 22 new stadiums.
