Ras Abu Aboud Stadium

Meet a pioneer in stadium development and mega sporting events – Ras Abu Aboud Stadium.

Constructed using shipping containers, removable seats and other modular ‘building blocks’, not only will this innovative, 40,000-seat venue have a remarkable design, but it will be entirely dismantled and repurposed after the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Its parts will be used in other sporting or non-sporting projects, setting a new standard in sustainability and introducing bold new ideas in tournament legacy planning.

A legacy for the community

Located on the shores of the Gulf, looking across to Doha’s dazzling West Bay skyline, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will be a spectacular venue for matches up to the quarter-finals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Following the tournament’s conclusion, the stadium will be dismantled and make way for a waterfront development for local people to enjoy.

A legacy for the world

As well as providing invaluable infrastructure to sporting projects far and wide, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will also give global stadium developers and tournament planners a fine example to follow.

The venue’s temporary nature and clever modular design will mean that fewer building materials will be required than in traditional stadium building, helping to keep construction costs down.

And with other projects reusing the seats, roof and other components of the arena, parts of the venue will be utilised for years and even decades to come.

Minimising construction costs and ensuring regular future use are the key ingredients in making a new stadium – and sporting mega events – sustainable.

Ras Abu Aboud Stadium will create an innovative blueprint that many others will follow.
