Qatar World Cup Stadium Has Hotel Room With View Of Pitch

Qatar World Cup Stadium Has Hotel Room With View Of Pitch

A stadium being used in the World Cup has a luxury hotel room with a balcony view of the pitch.

The Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor is one of eight new grounds hosting matches at the 2022 showpiece and has a suite where guests are able to watch the action in total VIP style and comfort.

Although it won't come on the cheap, the five star suite is ideal for anyone who wishes to experience a feast of world-class football without even moving out of bed.

The arena, set to be officially completed in December, will have a 60,000 capacity and is inspired by tents used in Qatar's deserts. There will also be a woodland area and artificial lake surrounding the ground.

Bayern Munich have similar luxury facilities at the Allianz Arena through a partnership with Marriott Hotels. The Marriott Courtyard suite, opened in October 2018, has stunning views of the pitch that one of Europe's top sides play their home games.

The suite also includes a fireplace for those cold Bavarian winter fixtures.

The Al Wakrah stadium, another host ground for the next World Cup ,has previously gone viral after some people decided it looked like a massive vagina.

While the design was said to have been modelled on by the shape of a dhow boat, a vessel typically used for pearl diving and fishing - people were having none of it.

British-Iraqi architect Dame Zaha Hadid, who died suddenly from a heart attack three years ago, was the brains behind the project and hit back at critics in 2013.

"It's really embarrassing that they come up with nonsense like this," she told Time Magazine.

"What are they saying? Everything with a hole in it is a vagina? That's ridiculous. If a guy had done this project there wouldn't have been the same level of criticism."

The World Cup in Qatar will be the first to be played in the winter due to extreme temperatures and conditions in the summer for players.
