FIFA World Cup 2022 First ever Transportable stadium
Qatar is hosting the footballing extravaganza that is the FIFA World Cup 2022. This time, the tournament is unique as this is the first occasion in history when the FIFA World Cup is being organised mid-season in December. There has been another unique thing constructed in Qatar, with a stadium that can be moved.
In the Qatari capital of Doha at the Ras Abu Aboud region of the city, a stadium has been constructed by the name of Stadium 974, which has been described as the world's first transportable stadium. The stadium also got its name from the number of shipping containers that were used to build the stadium.
This stadium will be dismantled after the World Cup, and will be shipped and reassembled for further use. There have been reports that the stadium will be used in Maldonado, Uruguay, to host the 2030 World Cup if the country's bid is accepted
The 40,000-capacity stadium has been constructed with the help of shipping containers sitting within the steel framework of the structure and providing the spaces for bathrooms, concessions, skyboxes, and media rooms. There is some natural ventilation that was constructed by the engineers and hence it needs no air conditioning inside the stadium.
Speaking about the unique stadium built for the World Cup, the official Qatar 2022 page on the stadium reads: "This unique venue pays tribute to Qatar’s long-standing tradition of worldwide trade and seafaring. Not only is 974 the international dialling code for Qatar, but it is also the exact number of shipping containers used in construction."
