With high summer temperature in Arabian countries, the stadiums are set to feature climate-controlling technology to combat the sweltering Qatari summer heat, which can easily surpass 40ºC. There has been a race against time to have all 8 Qatar World Cup stadiums ready on time for this massive event and soccer fans across the globe have been keen to learn the details of each arena.

Each stadium, training facility and fan zone is equipped with solar-powered cooling technology to keep the temperature at 27C. All stadiums are eco-friendly and their temperature will be controllable.
