Gulf Times, 27 November 2017

The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the organisation responsible for delivering the infrastructure required to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, unveiled yesterday the seventh stadium design – Ras Abu Aboud Stadium – in an online digital media campaign.
The first ever demountable and reusable FIFA World Cup stadium is to host matches up to the quarterfinal stages in 2022. The venue champions a bold and pioneering design concept based on shipping containers, removable seats and other steel modular building blocks that will come together to form an elegant curved square form venue.
It was envisioned by Spanish architecture firm Fenwick Iribarren Architects (FI-A), who are leaders in football stadium design and are behind some of the boldest venue designs in the region and the world including Qatar Foundation stadium, the Casablanca Football Stadium in Morocco, Valencia CF’s new football stadium in Spain, the new Norwegian National Stadium in Norway, and more.
In a first in the history of the FIFA World Cup, the stadium will be completely modular and get dismantled after the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Its building blocks will be repurposed post tournament and reused for the construction of several sporting or non-sporting venues across Qatar, helping widen access to cultural and sporting events across the country and supporting the fulfilment of the SC’s mission to ensure the tournament leaves a lasting legacy for the local community.
