A ‘vagina-shaped’ football stadium has been unveiled in Qatar ahead of the 2022 World Cup in the country.

The construction of the so-called Al Wakrah ground has now been completed, with some saying it resembles female genitalia.

The stadium, which will host matches until the quarter-finals of the tournament, was designed by the late British-Iraqi architect Dame Zaha Hadid.

Ms Hadid previously told TIME Magazine she was embarrassed that people were comparing the building to a vagina after artist’s impressions were published in 2013.

She said: “It’s really embarrassing they come up with nonsense stuff like this. What are they saying? Everything with a hole in it is a vagina? That’s ridiculous.”

The architect added that if the building was designed by a man, it would not have received the same level of criticism.

However, some critics supported the design of the so-called ‘Vagina Stadium’.
