FINAL 2022 STADIUM TO BE DESIGNED BY QATAR'S OLDEST ARCHITECTURE FIRM
The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy has appointed Arab Engineering Bureau (AEB) as the design consultant for the 2022 FIFA World Cup's eighth proposed host venue, which will be located in Al Thumama.
The stadium in Al Thumama will have a minimum capacity of 40,000 for the 2022 FIFA World Cup and host matches to the quarter-finals stage, which will be reduced to 20,000 seats after the tournament. The stadium will be built over an area of 515,400 square metres that already comprises four outdoor training pitches and office facilities currently used by the Qatar Football Association technical committee. “We are honoured to have won a bid in an international design competition to participate in such a prestigious project. For us it is an absolute privilege to be entrusted by the Supreme Committee to take the lead for the design of this stadium,” said AEB Group CEO and Chief Architect Ibrahim Mohamed Al Jaidah.
