Stadium design

January, 2015

 

The Qatar Foundation and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has officially unveiled the design for the Qatar Foundation Stadium. The stadium is part of the Health and Wellness Precinct, within Qatar Foundation Education City, and is conceived as a proposed host venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup´. It is also one of the principal sports complexes in Qatar. The stadium will have a tournament capacity of 40,000 spectators, which can be reduced in legacy mode to 25,000 thanks to a modular design that facilitates dismantling of the upper seating tier. Arup Madrid is leading the engineering team on this project and working closely with RFA Fenwick Iribarren Architects.
