Khalifa International Stadium

The historic Khalifa International Stadium is one step closer to being the first proposed host venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ Qatar to be completed, according to a September 1 report posted on the official website of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC).

“With the concrete structure approaching conclusion and new levels of seating areas adding to the height of the stadium, approximately 90 percent of the structural concrete has been laid and is expected to be fully completed within two months,” the report says.

Located in Al Rayyan Municipality, Khalifa International Stadium has long played a leading role in Qatar’s development as a premier host of major sporting events. The Aspire Zone Foundation, one of the SC’s stakeholders, is leading construction works on Khalifa International Stadium.

Engineer Mansoor Saleh B Al Muhannadi, Project Manager at Aspire Zone Foundation, is quoted in the report saying: “We are very happy with the rapid progress of renovation works at the site. Khalifa International Stadium is moving to new heights with structural work in concrete and steel, and the vertical structure is now at level eight while strengthening works are also underway. We expect the stadium to be handed over by the main contractor at the end of 2016.”

The arc and undulating roof of Khalifa International Stadium are visible from afar, providing a prominent introduction to the Aspire Zone. The large arch on the Eastern side which was used as a platform for the launch of fireworks during the 2006 Doha Asian Games opening ceremony has already been removed, and is currently being replaced by two arches which are further visible signs of progress on the site.
