First modular seating section of Al Bayt Stadiumby Kim Kemp on Feb 16, 2017
The first modular seating elements are all set to be installed at Al Bayt Stadium – Al Khor City.
Due to seat 60,000, the stands of Al Bayt Stadium - Al Khor City are reaching a height of 39 metres from ground level.
Set to host the semi-finals for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the innovative modular design and construction of the stadium means that almost half of the seating can be removed and given to football development projects around the world, once the tournament is over.
Designed like a traditional Arabian tent, the stadium is now fully under way with the start of installation of the first fix of approximately 2,500 seats at the north stand of the stadium.
The steel structure platforms for the modular seats are designed in Germany and manufactured in Italy, while the actual seats are designed and manufactured in Qatar. After the tournament, the stadium’s capacity will be reduced to approximately 32,000 seats.
