Burj Khalifa is set to become the world's tallest live scoreboard to relay football match updates until 15 July.

The world's tallest building's Football Live Scoreboard will relay the scorecards of 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia matches on its LED screen until the tournament's final fixture in July.

Additionally, the screen will feature the flag of the goal-scoring country. A tent has been dedicated within the Armani Hotel Dubai to accompany the Football Live Scoreboard. 

At the time of its launch in 2010, 28,261 glass cladding panels were reported to have made up the exterior of the tower and its two annexes.

Access for the tower's exterior for both window washing and façade maintenance was provided by 18 permanently installed track and fixed telescopic, cradle equipped, building maintenance units.

Burj Khalifa holds multiple architectural and engineering world records. 

In addition to being the world's tallest building, Burj Khalifa is the world's tallest free-standing structure. It also has the highest occupied floor, and the world's tallest elevator in a building.

According to Guinness World Records, it also holds the record for the largest light and sound show on a single building.

The light and sound show measures 109,252 m² (1,175,978 ft²), and was achieved by Emaar on 1 January, 2018, as part of a New Year's Eve show that combined lighting, lasers, an LED screen, sound and fountains.
