Qatar is spending $200 billion on the World Cup -- here's a first look at its newest stadium

Qatar has unveiled plans for a new massive soccer stadium for its turn as World Cup host in 2022.

The arena, which will be built in the capital city of Doha, is designed to look like a traditional Arabian skull cap.

Qatar is pushing ahead with construction despite the sanctions imposed on the country by four of its Arab neighbours: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates.

These countries accused the United States ally of supporting terrorism — a charge Qatar has denied.
