The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) has unveiled the design for Qatar Foundation Stadium and Health & Wellness Precinct, a proposed host venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which will be able to stage matches up to the quarter finals of the tournament.
Precisely four years to the day that Qatar celebrated its successful bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, it is one of four stadia that will be under construction by the SC and its partners by the end of 2014 with one further design to be unveiled this year, as the country continues to make further progress on the ground in 2014.
stad Project Management serves as the project manager and RFA Fenwick Iribarren Architects is the Design Consultant for the QF Stadium. The development of QF Stadium, and the associated Health & Wellness Precinct, will be overseen by the Qatar Foundation Capital Projects Directorate in coordination with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy.
The stadium will have a tournament capacity of 40,000 and, as with all proposed 2022 FIFA World Cup venues, will feature state-of-the-art cooling technology, ensuring comfortable playing and viewing conditions for fans and players alike. Post-tournament, the stadium’s capacity will be reduced to 25,000 to ensure efficient use after the tournament.
