Qatari firm chosen to Design Al Thumama World Cup stadium

One of Qatar’s oldest local architectural companies has been tapped to design Qatar’s eighth and likely final 2022 World Cup stadium.

The Arab Engineering Bureau (AEB), which was established in 1966, also holds the engineering contract for the stadium.

According to World Cup organizers, it will be located between E-Ring and F-Ring Roads, or between the Medical Commission and the under-construction Kahramaa Awareness Park.

The Supreme Committee of Delivery and Legacy (SCDL) added that the stadium will sit on an area of 515,400 square meters that already includes four outdoor training pitches and office facilities currently used by the Qatar Football Association Technical Committee.
