Qatar’s Ras Abu Aboud World Cup stadium to include waterfront community

Qatar’s seventh stadium for the 2022 World Cup in Ras Abu Aboud will be redeveloped into a new “urban neighborhood” looking out toward West Bay after the tournament, architects have said.

Local tournament organizers announced plans last month to construct the stadium near Hamad International Airport and the old Doha International Airport.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SCDL) – which is overseeing the construction of Qatar’s World Cup stadiums and training facilities – identified the specific location of the venue.

According to a map released by the committee, the stadium will be directly next to the Doha Marriott Hotel and adjacent marina, off the Ras Abu Aboud Expressway on an 111-acre site that currently contains a sports pitch, vacant land and more than a dozen existing buildings.
