Al-Bayt Stadium

Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy, in a report on its website on November 11, 2015, announced the mobilisation of the main contractor on the construction site of Al Bayt Stadium – the proposed semi-finals venue for the FIFA World Cup™ 2022. The report also suggested that the design for the stadium has been updated as well.

“One of Qatar’s most important stadium construction sites is evolving rapidly and is beginning to take shape on the ground. The main contractor for Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City, proposed host venue up to the semi-finals of the 2022 World FIFA Cup™ Qatar, has been recently mobilised on site. With the design based on a Qatari tent also evolving to incorporate new and more durable materials, Al Bayt Stadium is starting to rise from the ground on a specially designed hill which resembles the traditional areas chosen to make these types of tent more visible for visitors,” the report said.

“Several milestones have already been reached at Al Bayt Stadium, which will have a net seating capacity of 60,000. Enabling and early works including the site offices for the Project Management Team and hoarding have been completed, while the construction supervision consultant – KEO International Consultants – has been named. A joint venture between Galfar Al Misnad, Salini Impregilo Group and Cimolai are the team that will be in charge of main construction which is planned to be completed by the end of 2018,” it added.
