Work on Al Wakrah Stadium’s steel structure to begin soon

Big strides are being made at the Al Wakrah World Cup stadium site, as construction on the venue’s “superstructure” progresses, organizers have said.

In a statement this week, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SCDL) said substructure work has been completed.

A few months earlier, organizers mentioned that the stands are now beginning to rise from the ground.

Additionally, several cranes are going up to help build the steel structure of the stadium.

The 40,000 capacity arena will host the quarter finals of the 2022 World Cup.

In addition to hosting the games, the arena of Al Wakrah stadium will be the future home of Al Wakrah Sports Club.

There will also be a new sports center and community hub, the SCDL said.

The precinct will have space for a range of community facilities. They include a park, mosque, school, hotel, wedding hall, vocational training center and retail outlets.

Al Wakrah Stadium is on track to be completed by the fourth quarter of 2018.
