Al Bayt Stadium

It was a key legacy component of Qatar’s bid for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, and now the first modular seating elements are all set to be installed at Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City as the site continues to advance rapidly, according to a Qatar News Agency (QNA) report on February 13.

The stands of Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City are now visible from afar reaching a height of 39 metres from ground level. The modular construction of the proposed semi-final host venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™ means that almost half of its seating can be removed and given to football development projects around the world.

Construction at the 60,000-seat stadium, which is designed like a traditional Arabian tent, is now in full swing with the commencement of installation of the first fix of approximately 2,500 seats at the north stand of the stadium.

The steel structure platforms for the modular seats are designed in Germany and manufactured in Italy, while the actual seats are designed and manufactured in Qatar. After the tournament, the stadium’s capacity will be reduced to approximately 32,000 seats.
