Qatar Foundation has outlined its future agenda for sports development in the country at the third day of the Aspire4sport conference hosted south of the Qatari capital yesterday, according to AME.

Entitled ‘Aspire-BUILD’, the session was attended by a diverse range of the construction experts including engineers, architects and consultants who discussed the future roll out of the 12 stadiums, which will be purpose built for the first Middle Eastern World Cup in 2022.

With sustainability at the core of the discussions, the Qatar Foundation is working in conjunction with the Legacy and Security committee, both of which fall under the Qatar 2022 Supreme Council. Every detail of the stadiums will be completed to LEED certification.

Mr Jassim Telefat, technical director of Qatar Foundation's Capital Projects, said, "We strive, through the construction of these modern sport facilities, to support the efforts of Qatar to host a multitude of international events and world sports championships. Through this project, we are keen to contribute towards achieving the Foundation's vision of developing the community and encouraging Qatar's residents to lead a healthy lifestyle by providing them with the latest sports facilities."

He added: "The current plans developed by Qatar Foundation for the stadium and its surrounding facilities will ensure that these amenities are used on a daily basis by members of Qatar Foundation, as well as the rest of the community in Qatar."
