The Wall Stadium (also nicknamed "The Laptop") is an underground stadium, currently under construction in Doha, Qatar.

Designed by architecture firm MZ Architects / MZ & Partners, the Wall Stadium is a one of a kind football stadium, unique in its form and revolutionary in its design, emerging from a green shallow dune. Its main stand sits upright, the majority of its height emerging from the underground pitch. A lawn and stand will be built in the basement of the stadium. It has an advantage of having fresh air beneath the feet, thus adding to the overall speed of the game as players are fresh throughout the game. Another innovative feature is that there will be no traditional floodlights or light towers as normally seen around sports stadiums around the world, as all lights will be embedded within the surrounding architecture, adding to the stadium’s mystical feel.
