As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact, a Chinese soccer club in China has already begun work on a $1.7 billion soccer stadium.
Guangzhou Evergrande announced that work has begun on an eye-catching, 100,000-seater stadium, which would be the largest football stadium in the world.
Designed in a lotus flower shape, the stadium is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022.
The goal is to have the lotus flower shaped stadium to become a world-class new landmark comparable to the Sydney Opera House and an important symbol of Chinese football going to the world.
