Ras Abu Aboud Stadium to be first fully demountable World Cup stadium
Details of the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, the seventh Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup stadium design, have been unveiled by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the organisation responsible for delivering the infrastructure required to host the tournament.
The stadium features a bold and innovative design concept unique to any World Cup stadium ever made. Built using modular building blocks, each containing removable seats, concession stands, lavatories and other fundamental stadium elements, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium combines tournament experience and legacy planning in a revolutionary way to create a unique venue.
“Innovation has always been central to our plans for delivering a historic FIFA World Cup that leaves a legacy for Qatar and the world, and there is no better example of this than the design of Ras Abu Aboud Stadium,” SC Secretary General H.E. Hassan Al Thawadi said.
“This venue offers the perfect legacy, capable of being reassembled in a new location in its entirety or built into numerous small sports and cultural venues. All of this in a stadium that delivers the atmosphere fans expect at a World Cup and which we will build in a more sustainable way than ever before. I’m delighted with this design and confident that Ras Abu Aboud will become a blueprint for future mega-event planners to follow.”
