Site works on the proposed host venue for the first and final matches of Qatar's World Cup 2022 have started, according to a report.
 
The 80,000-seat Lusail stadium is the country's sixth Fifa World Cup stadium project, said The National report.
 
The works will include the erection of 5 km of hoarding around the 1 million-sq-m site, as well as the erection of site facilities and offices, it said.
 
The final designs from British architecture firm Foster + Partners are on track for completion, while the main contract is yet to be awarded.
 
The firm is working alongside the London-based stadium specialist Populous and engineering consultancy Arup, it added.
