World Cup fever is bubbling away in Qatar, and to get you even more excited the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has shared some new stadium snaps.

Work is well underway on Ras Abu Aboud Stadium in Al Wakrah which is set to become the first world’s first stadium built to be fully dismantled post-2022.

The 40,000-seat venue is being built using shipping containers, and will be converted into a waterfront development with stunning West Bay views once the tournament is over.

The SC shaped four snaps of the stadium on Twitter, saying, “Ras Abu Aboud Stadium is making steady progress!

“Constructed using shipping containers and modular elements, this 40,000-seat #Qatar2022 venue will be entirely dismantled and repurposed post-2022, setting a new standard in tournament sustainability and legacy.”

Eight stadiums will be used for the World Cup in 2022, including the Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah that was designed by the late Zaha Hadid.
