A first for the world. Ras Abu Aboud Stadium is setting a new standard in stadium development and mega-events. As detailed by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will be:-
Constructed using shipping containers, removable seats and other modular “building blocks”, not only will this innovative, 40,000-seat venue have a remarkable design, but it will be entirely dismantled and repurposed after the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. Its parts will be used in other sporting or non-sporting projects, setting a new standard in sustainability and introducing bold new ideas in tournament legacy planning.”
The location of this innovative stadium is on the shores of the Gulf, with magnificent views of West Bay, Doha. This is where matches up to the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will be held. At the end of the tournament, the stadium will be dismantled and replaced with a waterfront development, a legacy for the community.
In terms of sustainability, these are the key points:-
- Developers and tournament planners will have an innovative blueprint to follow
- Fewer building materials will be required
- Minimised Construction costs due to temporary nature and smart modular design
- Other projects to reuse the seats, roof and other components of the arena
Watch this short video explaining just how this exciting and innovative project will come together, ready for a spectacular FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ for fans from all over the world to enjoy.
