About Stadium 974

Located on the shores of the Gulf, across the water from Doha’s dazzling West Bay skyline, Stadium 974 is the world’s first fully demountable covered football stadium.

Inspired by Qatar’s strong history in seafaring and trade, this stadium is constructed entirely from shipping containers and modular steel.

The deconstructed elements of the venue will continue to be utilised for years and even decades after the FIFA World Cup™.

The stadium bowl seating avoids the need for air conditioning as it is designed to be naturally ventilated. The overall stadium steel structure can be recycled and reused post-tournament, based on any legacy option that is selected.

The clever modular design means that fewer building materials were required than in traditional stadiums – keeping construction costs down, reducing waste and putting sustainability at its core. The innovative cooling system was designed to re-distribute the Gulf breeze around the venue.

The stadium was unveiled during a digital launch in November 2021 and hosted its first match during the opening day of the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021™ when the United Arab Emirates played Syria on 30 November 2021.

Stadium 974 Legacy and Sustainability 

According to the FIFA website, this is the first-ever FIFA complaint stadium that can be fully dismantled and re-purposed post-event.

This includes flexibility in the design to rebuild the stadium with the same capacity in a different location or build multiple smaller venues using the same materials.

The stadium received a 5-star rating from the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) for both its design and construction.
