Qatar 2022 World Cup stadiums decided by year end
Qatar is set to reveal how many stadiums will be used to host the 2022 World Cup by the end of this year
Qatar hope to decide how many stadiums it will use when hosting the 2022 World Cup by the end of this year, a spokesman for the organising committee said on Tuesday 11, August, 2015.
Qatar has announced details for five stadiums.
Its bid included plans for 12 stadiums, but those proposals were not binding. However, it is obligied to use at least eight.
A spokesman for Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, said: “The final number of stadiums is still to be confirmed, but it is expected a decision will be reached towards the end of 2015.”
The Supreme Committee declined to estimate the total cost of stadium construction and renovation.
“Due to the stadiums currently going through the tender process, we are not in a position to release any further budgetary figures at this stage,” they added.
To date, main contractors have been appointed for two venues.
A joint venture between local firm Midmac Contracting and Dubai’s Six Construct was awarded the contract for Khalifa International.
While, another joint venture between Qatar’s Galfar Al Misnad and Italian duo Salini Impregilo and Cimolai won the contract for Al Bayt Stadium.
The five stadiums which have been announced for the tournament are a mixture of new builds and rebuilds of existing grounds in the region.
Organisers have yet to unveil where the final will be staged.
