Ras Abu Aboud Stadium Progress
At Ras Abu Aboud, a truly unique stadium is being built. It will be the first FIFA World Cup™ venue to be fully dismantled and repurposed following the tournament.
Excavations are complete and venue's foundations are complete. Work on drainage networks and other utilities is progressing well. In the meantime, the shipping containers that will become the arena's "building blocks" and the steel elements that will become the frame have been delivered to the site and installation has commenced.
This vital work paves the way for a stadium to showcase the world's best players – and one that will inspire a new wave of innovative and sustainable sporting venues.
