Meet container Stadium 974 ahead of World Cup games – Market Subset News

Qatar showcased its Ras Abu Aboud stadium in Doha, also known as Stadium 974, a fully demountable venue ahead of World Cup games.

The stadium was built using 974 recycled shipping containers as modular building blocks as part of a sustainable design concept. The number 974 is also the Qatar area code.

Stadium 974 was designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects and seating 40,000 people. However, it will be dismantled at the end of the tournament so will host visitors temporarily.

During the World Cup, the venue is expected to host five first-round group matches.
