With Qatar scheduled to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Arabian country continues its preparation towards hosting the world’s biggest football competition.
Among the seven stadiums being built for the FIFA tournament is the Ras Abu Aboud stadium in Doha, which will be the first fully built reusable stadium to host a FIFA competition.
With sustainability being the key focus for the builders, it will be constructed using recyclable components, mainly containers to be used to build everything from Offices, hospitality boxes, and washrooms.
1,000 containers and other steel structures are expected to be used for the stadium which will be dismantled and used to build another stadium elsewhere after the world cup.
The 40,000 capacity stadium according to the project manager, Mohammed Al Mulla could be moved or split into two.
“It could be a good opportunity for those countries to reutilize the whole facility that we are going to build here,” he said in an interview with Aljazeera.
Meanwhile, one out of the seven stadiums; the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah have already been completed.
