World Cup 2022 fans will have the unique Ras Abu Aboud field when assembled by hundreds of used containers, and will be dismantled after the event.
The Ras Abu Aboud will be the first stadium of this type to host the World Cup with a pioneering solution that designs the stadium with its own uniqueness and blueprints for future sporting events. In addition, the legacy of sustainability in environmental protection will also be mentioned in many world and human football history. The stadium is made primarily of used shipping containers and is set to host matches until the 2022 World Cup quarter-finals in Qatar.
Especially, after the tournament, the stadium with a capacity of 40,000 people will be completely removed, with parts being “assembled” into sports facilities in Qatar and abroad.

According to FIFA, the sustainable legacy of the Ras Abu Aboud pitch is secured, which most people don’t know are what measures are taken to secure its location – close to Doha Harbor. The land where Ras Abou Aboud is being built has been decontaminated after years of industrial use. Significant work has been carried out by the Supreme Commission on Logistics & Heritage of Qatar (SC) to remove existing buildings, laboratories, factories and fuel blocks. Some old buildings have been retained – partly because of their cultural and architectural value.
