Meet a pioneer in stadium development and mega-events: Stadium 974.
Stadium 974’s innovative design is inspired by Qatar’s worldwide trade and seafaring. 974 is the international dialling code for Qatar, as well as the exact number of shipping containers used in construction.
The innovative 40,000-seat venue has a remarkable design, and will be the first fully demountable tournament venue in FIFA World Cup™ history. This sets a new standard in sustainability and introduces bold new ideas in tournament legacy planning.
A legacy for the community
Located on the shores of the Gulf, located across the water from Doha's dazzling West Bay skyline, Stadium 974 is a spectacular venue for FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ matches. Following the tournament's conclusion, the stadium will make way for a waterfront development for local people to enjoy.
A legacy for the world
As well as providing invaluable infrastructure to sporting projects far and wide, Stadium 974 also gives global stadium developers and tournament planners a fine example to follow.
The venue's temporary nature and clever modular design mean that fewer building materials were required than in traditional stadium building, which helped to keep construction costs down.
And with other projects reusing the seats, roof and other components of the arena, parts of the venue will be utilised for years and even decades to come.
Minimising construction costs and ensuring regular future use were the key ingredients in making this stadium – and sporting mega-events – sustainable.
Stadium 974 has created an innovative blueprint that many others will follow.
