A fully demountable stadium, designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects and built from shipping

containers, is now open and ready to host games during the FIFA 2022 World Cup.

Called Stadium 974, the innovative design has been inspired by Qatar’s worldwide trade and seafaring.

The name comes from 974 being the international dialling code for Qatar, as well as the exact number of shipping containers used in construction.

Located across the water from Doha's West Bay skyline, on the site of the former Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, the venue is the seventh to be completed for the 2022 World Cup.

With a capacity of 40,000, is the first fully demountable tournament venue in FIFA World Cup history.

Following the World Cup, the stadium will be dismantled and transported to other host cities for the next World Cup, helping make it more sustainable and financially viable for other countries.

According to the Qatar 2022 organising committee (Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy), the stadium also sets a new standard in sustainability and introduces "bold new ideas in tournament legacy planning".

"As well as providing invaluable infrastructure to sporting projects far and wide, Stadium 974 also gives global stadium developers and tournament planners a fine example to follow," said secretary-general, Hassan Al Thawadi.

"The venue's temporary nature and clever modular design mean that fewer building materials were required than in traditional stadium building, which helped to keep construction costs down.

"And with other projects reusing the seats, roof and other components of the arena, parts of the venue will be utilised for years and even decades to come.

"The concept of sustainability is at the very core of Stadium 974. Its seaside location offers a natural cool breeze to lighten the load on the stadium's cooling systems."

With the construction model, the organising committee is aiming to achieve a 4-star Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certification.

The design uses prefabricated and modular elements, which reduced the waste generated during the production of stadium components and the waste created on-site during construction.

The use of modular elements also reduced the venue's construction duration.

Fenwick Iribarren together with Schlaich Bergermann Partner and Hilson Moran were commissioned by the committee to redesign the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium.
