Liverpool to play Club World Cup semi-final in brand-new 2022 World Cup venue

Football’s world governing body FIFA has announced that Liverpool will play in a brand new 2022 World Cup venue when they compete in the Club World Cup in Qatar on 18 December.
The 40,000-capacity Education City Stadium in Doha is one of the venues for the 2022 World Cup.
The new stadium will also host the third-place play-off and the final on 21 December.
The European Champions could face either CONCACAF Champions League winners Monterrey, Al Sadd of Qatar or Oceania Champions Hienghene Sport of New Caledonia in the semi-final.
Qatar is using the 2019 and 2020 Club World Cup events to test the hosting of the 2022 World Cup finals.
Qatar has so far inaugurated the newly-built al-Janoub stadium in May and the Khalifa International Stadium, which was opened in 1976 and was relaunched in 2017 after a complete refurbishment.
The 2022 World Cup host currently hosting World Athletics Championships has been condemned over the poor attendances at the Khalifa Stadium in Doha, with the venue mostly empty on Sunday as Great Britain’s Dina Asher-Smith won silver in the women’s 100 metres final.
