History from Wikipedia
Al Bayt Stadium (Arabic: استاد البيت) is a proposed football stadium which will be built in Al Khor, Qatar, in time for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. The stadium’s construction contract was awarded to Salini and Cimolai in 2015. In January 2020, the stadium received sustainability certificates of green design, construction management, and energy efficiency.
It will take on an asymmetrical seashell motif, providing covered seating for all spectators. Connected to a number of transportation systems, the onsite parking will be able to hold 6,000 cars, 350 buses, and the coming and going of 150 public buses/shuttles, as well as 1,000 taxis and water taxis. The stadium will host around 60,000 World Cup fans, including 1,000 seats for the press. The stadium is certified for its sustainability credentials under the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) for a number of certifications representing sustainable design & build and construction management practices.
The stadium will also include luxurious hotel suites and rooms with balcony views of the football field.
To mark the National Sports Day, the stadium’s adjacent park’s official opening was announced to be held on Qatar’s sports day itself, 11 February 2020.
