• Ras Abu Aboud, world’s first removable and reusable stadium

    It will be made by colored containers and will have a capacity of 40,000 spectators.

    https://bajio.telediario.mx/ – The Ras Abu Aboud stadium will be the world’s first removable and reusable venue, as it will be made of coloured containers for a total capacity of 40,000 spectators.

    ‘The goal is to create a socially responsible stage based on the concepts of modularity, mobility, legacy, functioning and iconic image,’ said the FIA study.

    The design is mainly based on standard transport containers that can be easily disassembled for construction in other countries.

    It is estimated that this complex is ready for the beginning of 2021, which will host the next Qatar World Cup 2022, which starts in November of that year.
