The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), the body responsible for delivering the infrastructure required to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, shared latest pictures of the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor City, one of the eight stadiums that will host the World Cup finals.
The SC shared that the retractable roof has been installed along with work on the external facade and roof membrane progressing at a fast pace.
In a tweet, the SC said: Check out the latest photos of Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City! The retractable roof system installation has been completed and the external façade and roof membrane installation continues to advance rapidly.”
In April, SC had completed the turf laying of Al Bayt Stadium in a record time of just 6 hours 41 minutes.
The stadium, which will host matches right through to the 2022 FIFA World Cup semi-finals, is designed in the style of a traditional Bedouin tent, will have a capacity of 60,000 during the World Cup. Post-tournament, the capacity will be reduced to approximately 30,000, with parts of the stadium donated to countries in need of sporting infrastructure.
The upper concourse of the stadium will be converted into a hotel, while a shopping center and branch of Aspetar, the leading sports medicine facility, will also be incorporated into the structure, alongside entertainment and shopping centers, multipurpose halls and other venues.
Parks and greenery will also form an integral part of the surrounding precinct.
