https://www.sc.qa/en/news/sc-unveils-design-plans-for-ras-abu-aboud-stadiumThe Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has unveiled the design of Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, the seventh 2022 FIFA World Cup™ stadium design to be released.
Due for completion in 2020, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium has a bold and innovative design concept, never seen in a FIFA World Cup™ venue before. Built using modular building blocks, it combines tournament experience and legacy planning in a revolutionary way to create a truly unique venue.
Challenged with creating a venue that offers world-class atmosphere and fan experience as well as unrivalled legacy benefits, FI-A broke the stadium down into conceptual ‘building blocks’ and created a new design concept never seen at a mega-event before. The modular building blocks Ras Abu Aboud Stadium consists of are modified shipping containers, each containing fundamental stadium elements that can be quickly assembled and disassembled at various locations as required, all in pursuit of the SC’s mission to ensure the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ Qatar leaves a lasting legacy for the country, the region and the world.
The 40,000-seat venue is slated for completion in 2020 and will be located in a 450,000m2 waterfront site on Doha’s shore, where the use of shipping containers as one of the main building blocks will echo the nearby port. Situated just southeast of Doha and a mere 1.5km from the city’s state-of-the-art Hamad International Airport, it will be serviced by excellent transport links, including a dedicated stop on Qatar Rail’s Gold Line (less than a 10-minute ride from Doha’s central Msheireb Station and just 25 minutes from the Airport), direct road connections to the centre of Doha and Al Wakrah, and potentially even a water taxi stop.
What is so funny or special about Rotterdam? Besides the fact that we are developing a new stadium there at the riverfront (and partially over the river) to be opened in 2023?I don't know about Doha but man this would look great in Rotterdam :lol:
Oh no nothing funny at all! Sorry if my "lol" emoji seemed like sarcasm (those smiley faces can get to be a force of habit with me!) I just thought of Rotterdam given a.) its great soccer tradition and b.) its status as the shipping hub of Europe. Also the general design of the stadium seems "European" to me, and the red and white and black color scheme makes me think of the dutch because of the Amsterdam flag (of course the stadium would have to be green and white!).What is so funny or special about Rotterdam?

BY LORETTA RACE
Although the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro were pitched as one of sustainability, the lingering images from a Games now 6 months removed can only be described as disturbing. What once held images of American Michael Phelps clinching his 23rd Olympic gold medal and Australian Kyle Chalmers shocking a loaded men’s 100m freestyle field is now left in shambles, as Rio’s Olympic Aquatics Centre is now in a dilapidated state.
...The 15,000-seat capacity stadium was built specifically for the Olympics, with plans to dismantle and repurpose the actual pool. The facility was to be broken down and reconstructed into two smaller aquatics facilities to serve the community after the Olympics wrapped up. However, as the world has witnessed with past Games, the aquatics center now rests empty, decaying and in a state of utter disrepair.
how such this stadium can host a match by 45° degrees ???
Texas is hosting many sporting events under such high temperatures New Mexico, California :cheers::banana:
well the hottest city in Texas that has soccer/football in the summer is Houston, and the average temperature there is 29 degrees Celsius in July/August, nowhere near 45 degrees! Even Austin and San Antonio rarely if ever get above 35 degrees.
The only cities in the US that have a comparable climate to Doha and also have major sporting teams are Las Vegas and Phoenix, and ALL of their major stadiums are domes/arenas:
Though to be fair Phoenix's stadium DOES have a retractable roof for winter/night games:
