An article from the Official website (http://www.qatar2022bid.com/lognew/?post=27)

EXPECT AMAZING STADIUMS!

The bid unveiled five carbon-neutral, air-conditioned stadia in Dubai yesterday. The five stadiums were revealed alongside a showcase stadium, which will be completed in July. We’re creating the showcase stadium to demonstrate the technology we’ll use to keep our stadiums, all of which are outdoors, at a cool and constant 27 degrees Celsius during the FIFA World Cup™.

The five stadia – Al-Khor, Al-Wakrah, Al-Shamal, Al-Rayyan, Al-Gharafa – were unveiled on the sidelines of SportAccord, an annual conference held this year in Dubai that offers the global sports community an opportunity to meet, network and further the cause of international sports.

Each of the five stadiums will harness the power of the suns rays to provide a cool environment for players and fans by converting solar energy into electricity that will then be used to cool both fans and players at the stadiums. When games are not taking place, the solar installations at the stadia will export energy onto the power grid. During matches, the stadia will draw energy from the grid. This is the basis for the stadiums’ carbon-neutrality.

Along with the stadiums themselves, the cooling technology will be used in fan zones and practice pitches, ensuring that fans will be comfortable throughout their time at FIFA World Cup™.

Another innovation we’ve developed is the creation of modular stadiums. The upper tier of each of the five stadiums will be removed after Qatar hosts the FIFA World Cup™. They will then be donated to developing countries that lack sports infrastructure. During the FIFA World Cup™, each stadium will be able to accommodate between 40,000 and 50,000 fans. When the tournament ends, the lower tiers of the stadia will remain in Qatar, able to accommodate between 20,000 and 25,000 fans, suitable for local football, while the upper tiers will be sent to developing nations.

We see sending the stadiums to developing nations as an integral part of our bid, as doing so will allow for the further development of football on the global stage. Along with the stadiums, we plan to make the cooling technologies we’ve developed available to other countries in hot climates, so that they too can host major sporting events.

Finally, we’ll be able to adapt the technologies we’re pioneering now for other uses. Many activities that were previously considered off-limits in the summer months, such as outdoor football training, will be feasible.

We’ll be taking a closer look at the engineering of our revolutionary cooling system in the coming days. For now, let’s take a look at each of the individual stadiums!

AL-KHOR

image hosted on flickr


• Al-Khor is a brand new stadium that will be built in the city of Al-Khor, 50 kilometers north of Doha.

• The stadium takes its design cues from the seashell.

• During the FIFA World Cup™ the stadium will hold 45,330 fans. A permanent lower tier will have 25,500 seats while a modular upper tier will have 19,830 seats.

image hosted on flickr


• All seats will be covered, and some will have stunning views of the Arabian Sea.

• Fans will be able to arrive by water taxi, train and car.

AL-WAKRAH

image hosted on flickr


• Al-Wakrah is a brand new stadium that will be built in Al-Wakrah, a city 20 kilometers south of Doha.

• The stadium and surrounding sports complex are designed to represent an oasis. The sporting complex will include an aquatic center and other sporting facilities, along with a spa and retail space.

image hosted on flickr


• During the FIFA World Cup™ the stadium will hold 45,120 fans. A permanent lower tier will have 25,500 seats while a modular upper tier will have 19,620 seats.

• Fans will be able to arrive by train or by using the new Doha Expressway.

AL-SHAMAL

image hosted on flickr


• Al-Shamal is a brand new stadium that will be built in western Qatar.

• The stadium takes its design cues from the dhow, the traditional fishing vessel in the Arabian Gulf.

• During the FIFA World Cup™ the stadium will hold 45,330 fans. A permanent lower tier will have 25,500 seats while a modular upper tier will have 19,830 seats.

image hosted on flickr


• Fans will be able to arrive by water taxi, train and car. It will be easily accessible from the Qatar-Bahrain Friendship Bridge, and we expect that at least 10% of fans will arrive from Bahrain.

Al-Rayyan

image hosted on flickr


• Al-Rayyan is an existing stadium in a Doha suburb that will be expanded for the FIFA World Cup™.

• The stadium includes a “media façade” with the capacity to project other football matches, news and advertisements onto the outside of the stadium.

image hosted on flickr


Al-Gharafa

image hosted on flickr


• Al-Gharafa is an existing stadium in a suburb of Doha that will be expanded for the FIFA World Cup™.

• The façade will be made up of the colours of the teams playing in the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, representing the values of the global football community.

image hosted on flickr


• During the FIFA World Cup™ the stadium will hold 44,740 fans. The existing lower tier has 21,175 seats while a modular upper tier will have 23,565 seats. Roofing elements will be added so that all seats are covered.

• Fans will be able to arrive by train and car.

As you can tell, all of the stadiums will be accessible via the rail network Qatar is currently constructing. The compactness of Qatar will be used to the advantage of fans and players, as every stadium is 1 hour or less from all other stadiums. Fans will be able to see more matches and players will have more time to focus on the game.

And we aren’t done yet! Remember we still have seven more stadiums to reveal, along with many other surprises.

Yes i think they will be part of the next set of stadiums to be revealed, this is information that i currently have.

- Doha Port Stadium (43,500 seats): will be visible from afar at night, giving the illusion of floating out at sea and making for spectacular television images from the air, to be beamed by billions of viewers across the globe. After the last game of the World Cup has been played, as part of Qatar's legacy to football across the globe, the stadium will be down-scaled and its modules used to construct new stadiums in other countries of the developing world.

- Khalifa International Stadium (70,000 seats): the stadium will be transformed into a 70,000-seat stadium that will personify Qatar's unique blend of tradition and modernity.

- The stunning backdrops of the stadiums which Qatar has planned include the iconic Education City complex, as well as the Doha Port area near the Old Souqs. Additional stadiums are planned in Al Khor, Al Wakrah and Al Shamal, ensuring that Qatar's continued investments in sport infrastructure brings benefits to local communities in the major population centres.
And here is a stadium that has been revealed outside the Qatar 2022 Bid, to be built in an exsisting sport city named Aspire Zone would be close to Khalifa International Stadium. no info on size..

Al-Bayt Stadium

The architectural form of the stadium represents a shelter from the region’s harsh weather conditions, in addition to its magnificent illumination of Qatar’s ancient heritage and artistic aspects.
The name of the spectacular stadium has been taken from Qatar’s traditional terminology. It’s called ALBAYT Stadium‏, meaning a tent that is made from animal hair. Tents are usually woven from goats’ black hair with occasional additions of other colorful threads, which gives the tent a streaked appearance. The external framework of the playground reminds us of this safe haven, where Bedouins have lived in for generations.

First off I appreciate Qatar's ambition and the intentions behind this bid. Believe me, as a resident of metro Atlanta (1996 Olympics) I appreciate what they're trying to achieve.

That being said I still have to believe there's a line somewhere between FIFA wanting to support investment in the game and what might be an outright waste of money. If they've this much money to invest in stadiums then surely there are other points of capital investment that could benefit the populace more greatly, no? At the least, I can think of other Arab nations that could find more use from such stadium investment, if that's something Blatter is truly concerned with.

I'm not discounting their bid, I simply don't rate it high enough to compete with those already established in part because of these concerns.

One man's thoughts, anyway. Cheers.

me too

but they will not get it, they are just too small country, harsh laws on drinking and alcohol, league standard is low, attendances are too small, and to have ten stadiums with more than 20k people... it would be lovely to have WC in that part of world, but this is impossible to expect (maybe Saudi Arabia once).... but they maybe can get it if they bribe FIFA officials, as Polish and Ukrainians did to get 2012 Euro)... but they are honest people to do that, there is no mafia

BTW how come everyone is sure Poland and Ukraine bribed Fifa ??? is it official ??? and yes bribery is something very common in this country.

BTW the 40k stadiums are going to be downgraded to 20k and the removed 20k's will be given to Poor developing countries to start developing sport's in those countries.

That's very good and should be applauded, but it's the bits which are staying which puzzle me. Is there the demand for a dozen 20k+ stadiums in a country whose population barely reaches 2m and whose football league is so small attendences for even the biggest clubs rarely go over 10 thousand?

I'd be surprised, if so ! Since they've never submitted a bid for any FIFA competition !

no, they bribed UEFA, not FIFA, of course... they could not get Euro, their infrastructure was catastrophic... roads = zero points, hotels = zero points, sport leagues were and are full of mobsters and fixed matches... Italy was better then Pol/Ukr, but they were also bad... and Croatia and Hungary, best in first round of voting, best offer, best road connections, touristic countries, successful in football (HUN was, CRO is) got ZERO votes... Italy, current world champion got FOUR, and POL UKR, which should have been thrown away in first round of voting, was awarded with Euro... so yes, they bribed UEFA

I find it heartbreaking that Qatar is putting that much effort in a bid that doesn't have a shot in hell. A similar bid by ANY traditional underdeveloped country would be an uncostested winner - imagine Argentina, Colombia, Mexico or Egypt proposing those stadiums....
