Stadium 974

Ras Abu Aboud, 10km east of central Doha

The only waterfront venue with a spectacular view of the Doha skyline, Stadium 974 was constructed using standard certified shipping containers and modular steel elements, echoing the nearby port and the industrial history of the plot.

The result is a distinctive, boldly colourful and thoroughly modern arena. The concept of the stadium was designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects.

The stadium’s clever modular design meant that fewer normal building materials were required than in traditional stadium development, which helped keep construction costs down.
