World Cup 2022, Qatar Makes A Disassembled Stadium

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Qatar is building a number of new stadiums for the 2022 World Cup. Among them is the 974 Stadium (Stadium 974) which is completely concked down, meaning it can be disassembled, so it can be nomadic, aka moving.

This stadium was indeed built using the usual containers in the port and a modular steel frame as the main construction. The design is visually appealing while ensuring cost-effectiveness, considering that less materials are used compared to typical stadiums.

Stadium 974 with a capacity of 40,000 seats will host seven matches for the 2022 World Cup until the round of 16 later. Scheduled use of the stadium for the games Mexico vs Poland on November 22, Portugal vs Ghana on November 24, defending champions France vs Denmark on November 26, and one of the pre-tournament favorites Brazil vs Switzerland on November 28.

“This unique place honors Qatar’s long-standing traditions of world trade and shipping,” reads the description. The number 974 is not only the international dialing code for Qatar, but also the exact number of shipping containers used in construction.

“Located in the harbor area and overlooking the landscape of the coastal city of Doha, 974 Stadium football fans will feel the cool breeze blowing in from the Arabian Gulf,” it added.

Stadium 974 is an architectural concept that has modified container crates that are ‘nested’ within the steel frame construction of the stadium. They provide rooms for bathrooms, concessions, skyboxes, and media rooms. The natural ventilation created through the stadium’s design eliminates the need for air-conditioning machines.

In addition, 974 Stadium is the only stadium that is positioned close to the sea. It will also be the first stadium that players and supporters will see when they arrive in Qatar for the tournament, due to its proximity to Hamad International Airport.

Reportedly, this stadium will be dismantled to be installed in Maldonado, Uruguay, after the 2022 World Cup later. With a note, Uruguay, a Latin American country and one of the world’s football powers, won the bid to host the 2030 World Cup.
