Al Bayt Stadium Sustainability

Incorporating best energy usage practices and green building materials into its venues is a cornerstone of Qatar’s efforts to host the most environmentally friendly FIFA World Cup™ ever. Through its commitment to sustainable stadium construction, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) is working towards Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certifications.

Using history to deliver a green future

The very concept of this distinctive stadium, being delivered by Aspire Zone Foundation, is centred on sustainability and low energy usage. Based upon the tents that nomadic peoples have used for centuries to shield themselves from the desert heat, the design of Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City will minimise the amount of energy required to keep football fans and players cool. The tent structure’s lightweight canopies will stretch out towards the pitch from every side, providing plenty of shade to supplement the air cooling technologies at work.

A holistic approach to sustainability

The SC’s green building policy does not stop at the venue itself, but is extended to the surrounding city of Al Khor. This rapidly growing city will enjoy numerous parks and green spaces, and protected green belt land will stretch out from the stadium to the sea.

Tree-lined pedestrian walkways will guide fans to the arena, while extensive taxi and bus facilities will be constructed to minimise the number of vehicles on local roads. For those cars that do need to use the roads, improvement works will mean shorter journey times and a smaller environmental impact.

The SC and Aspire Zone Foundation are leaving no stone unturned in their determination to make Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City a venue that future generations can be proud of.
