Fans of the World Cup will be curious to learn more about Qatar and what it has to offer tourists now that Russia has relinquished the title of World Cup host to Qatar. In order to get a sense of the local culture and weather, tourists will be curious about where the various activities and sporting events will take place.
Some stadiums are still under construction. The stadiums’ one-of-a-kind designs were created by world-renowned architects from all over the world.
They will not only be a lasting tribute to Qatari culture, but they will also be a significant asset to the people of Qatar due to their accessibility, comfort, and environmental friendliness.
We’ll take a closer look at some of the World Cup 2022 stadiums that were built from the ground up in the coming posts. Al Khor, yet another city hosting this massive spectacle, is the focus of today’s post.
About the Al Khor Stadium
The stadium in Al Khor, a northern city, is completely covered by a massive tent structure. The opening and semi-final matches of FIFA 2022 will be held at the Al Bayt Stadium. Al Bayt Stadium invites visitors from all over the world, delighting them and allowing them to appreciate the country’s cultural heritage in its entirety.
The stadium design reflects Qatar’s legacy from both the present and the past while maintaining an eye on the community’s future. Its construction will be a showcase of green innovation, with Qatar’s environmental ideas firmly in mind. Around it, communal facilities are growing up.
For the FIFA World Cup 2022, this stadium will serve as a model for future stadium construction, making it an ideal site.
The top deck of the arena will be transformed into a 5-star hotel after the tournament is over. Visitors and locals alike will benefit from the venue’s inclusion of a shopping mall, food court, gym, and multipurpose hall.
Concept and Design
Black stripes, like the one on the arena’s striking exterior, and the vivid sadu patterns, which will greet visitors once they enter the stadium, have long been used to identify the tents of Qatar’s nomadic peoples and families.
In Qatar, visitors are given a taste of the region’s traditional style, while locals are reminded of their wonderful history.
The tent’s design is both visually appealing and functional. Shade from the tent framework and its movable roof system complements the stadium’s cooling technology, allowing it to maintain a pleasant temperature inside without consuming any more power.
The design of the region around Al Bayt Stadium has also been influenced by environmental concerns. Al Khor’s neighboring precinct’s design plan incorporates parks and flora, establishing a greener space for the city and allowing local families to enjoy the vital outdoor area.
Up to 60,000 people can watch a game at this stadium, which was built by the Aspire Zone Foundation. The stadium’s large tent structure, called after the nomadic tents of Qatar and the Gulf area, gives it a one-of-a-kind look.
Al Khor, a city 35 kilometers north of Doha, is known for its pearl diving and fishing. Its allure drew people from the desert to the ocean. FIFA 2022 organizers chose Al Khor because of its capacity to unite people from different backgrounds.
Even more, people will see the venue after the tournament, making it more accessible to a wider audience. It may be carried around like a real nomad’s hut.
As a permanent tribute to Qatar’s humanitarian spirit, Qatar will dismantle the upper deck of modular design seating after the FIFA World Cup 2022 and donate it to poor countries that need sporting facilities.
On June 20, 2014, the Aspire Zone Foundation and the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) unveiled the stadium design. The AI Khor area’s future was the focus of the event’s launch.
On September 3rd, 2018, construction on the 1,600-ton retractable roof of the venue got underway. It plays a critical function in maintaining a comfortable temperature in the stadium for both the players and the spectators.
To enhance the stadium precinct areas, the SC’s Turf Nursery grew its first tranche of grass that was seeded on October 28th, 2018.
