The Lusail Sports Arena is an aspirational and ambitious multi-purpose sports facility inaugurated with the men's World Cup Handball tournament in 2015 and located in Lusail City, Al Daayen, Qatar.
The arena's iconic conch shell design is inspired by the rich heritage of local Qatari culture with the external structure covered in coloured glass that reflects the sea, pearls and desert sands.
Combining innovative technologies and authenticity of culture, the design perfectly blends the futuristic vision of Lusail City with traditional Islamic architecture.
The arena is the largest in the Middle East with a floor area of 107,650m² but the level of detail future-proofs this stadium far beyond any design concept.
It incorporates 334,000m² of extensive landscaping which includes a running track, cycle route and outdoor covered gym in addition to multiple children's play areas.
Internal design clearly reflects a luxury guest experience with VIP facilities, retail shopping, food outlets and sumptuous seating.
The Qatar Olympic Committee wanted a venue primarily focussed on spectator comfort and specifically selected spacious and luxurious seating to ensure a truly spectator friendly sports experience for the 16,000 Capacity audience.
With the focus on visitor experience, Ferco's ARC family of seating was chosen for its ergonomic design and comfort in addition to its proven durability and low maintenance record.
The UK based company installed several fixed seating models at Lusail. In addition to fully upholstered backrests and luxury seat padding, the ARC seating collection is extremely customisable with additional features including cup holders, personalised branding and integrated data points.
Ferco claims to deliver fit for the future stadium seating that is the ultimate in comfort, aesthetically pleasing and beautifully engineered.
