World’s 1st 40,000-seater ‘transportable’ stadium that will be relocated to another country after FIFA World Cup!

Yes, you heard that right! 2022 FIFA World Cup that would begin in Qatar from November 20, would be held on world’s first ‘transportable’ stadium that would be relocated to another country post the mega event. It is being touted as the first ever detachable football stadium.

Spanish architecture firm Fenwick Iribarren Architects created Stadium 974 in Qatar, which is made entirely of colourful shipping containers and a modular steel structure. Its modular design blends recycled steel from the tower with repurposed shipping containers.

The 40,000-seat sports complex close to Doha’s port, formerly known as Ras Abu Aboud, is the first stadium in FIFA World Cup history to be completely demountable.

Fenwick Iribarren Architects collaborated with Schlaich Bergermann Partner and engineering firm Hilson Moran to create Stadium 974. After FIFA 2022, it will be disassembled and rebuilt in a new location.

The modular design of the stadium significantly decreased construction costs, build time, and material waste. According to the architects, water efficiency techniques assure that the stadium would use 40% less water than a typical stadium development.

The number of shipping containers utilised in its construction, 974, inspired the name of the stadium. Also, the country’s international dialling code is 974. The shipping containers pay tribute to Qatar’s nautical history and the industrial past of the location, many of which were utilised to bring building supplies to the venue.

Some of these steel containers have stairways, snack stands, and restrooms in addition to forming a section of the stadium’s parameter. Natural ventilation is made available by the stadium’s form and the spaces between the seats, negating the need for artificial cooling. The stadium’s proximity to the water helps with this.

Stadium 974 was created by Fenwick Iribarren Architects to receive the five-star certification in the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) for both its construction and design, according to the Supreme Committee for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 (SC).

The Middle East and North Africa are rated by GSAS for their green infrastructure and construction. A structure’s design, construction, and operation can all be certified; the highest possible rating is six stars.

On November 22, Mexico will play Poland; on November 24, Portugal will play Ghana; on November 26, holders France will play Denmark; and on November 28, Brazil will play Switzerland in the stadium.

Due to its proximity to Hamad International Airport, Stadium 974 would be the first stadium football that fans would see when they arrive in Qatar for the event. It is also the only stadium that is situated close to the sea.
