Built the fastest of the total of 8 stadiums for the 2022 World Cup, but the 974 field only lasted for exactly 1 year. After completing its mission of hosting World Cup matches, Stadium 974 was scheduled to host a fashion event before being completely demolished.
Courtyard 974 turned into a fashion event venue
The host nation of the 2022 World Cup, Qatar, calculated the 974 stadium, a plan to relocate some construction items, two days after organizing the competition between the Brazilian team and the Korean team in the 1/8 round of the tournament. The match was between the Brazilian team and the Korean team. . When the construction materials of this stadium will be served to some other countries or towards the future World Cup, this has been factored in from the beginning of the computation.
Compared to the time of the match between Brazil and Korea two days ago, recorded immediately at yard 974, a portion of the containers at the top of the yard have been gradually unloaded. Outside, there was a flurry of activity with cranes and trucks, with the former beginning to move containers and other World Cup-related goods from the latter’s location.
Nevertheless, three quarters of the container system that is located below have not been deconstructed. The reason for this is that yard 974 will continue to host a fashion event for a total of three days, starting on December 16 and ending on December 18. Because of this, 974 still temporarily retains the majority of the function rooms for the purpose of event organizing. This is in addition to the facilities, decorating, and identification systems surrounding the 2022 World Cup.
When one goes further into the 974 yard, it is not hard to see that the electronic billboard has been completely removed from its previous location. The fundamental configuration of the stands will not change in the coming days so that they may continue to provide service to the crowd that will be present at the 974 yard to see three days’ worth of fashion displays.
Planks are also being used to cover the grass in the area beneath the yard. It is common knowledge that the wooden planks will be laid down on top of the grass surface of 974 within the next several days. In addition to this, the organizers made use of an interlayer coating that was placed between the board and the court surface in order to maintain the highest possible level of playing grass quality.
The 974 yard was not completely destroyed until the 18th of December, which is after the conclusion of both the fashion event and the final match of the World Cup 2022, which took place at Lusail Stadium.
A special stadium
Stadium 974 can be classified as the most special World Cup 2022. Located in Ras Abu Aboud, a locality in the city of Doha, 974 has a maximum capacity of 44,089 people. The name 974 means both the number of containers to be used to design this place, as well as the international area code for Qatar.
According to confirmation from the 2022 World Cup organizers, this is the only stadium that does not have a cooling system installed. Because, this place only takes place in the evening matches. In addition, this court is located in the port area, welcoming the sea breeze from the bay.
After the demolition is finished, the components from the 974 stadium will reportedly be recycled and used in Maldonado, Uruguay, according to Arabian Business magazine. In the event that Qatar is awarded the privilege to host the 2030 World Cup, this action is taken to show support for that nation.
Many overseas fans used the 974 stadium as a photo opportunity before it was set to be dismantled.
“My family and I had a great experience when we went to see some matches at Stadium 974,” a supporter from North America said. Stadium 974 won’t be accessible after the 2022 World Cup, which is unfortunate. portrayed in Qatar. However, I find it amusing that the host nation is using this stadium again. The 974 is something we’d want to see at the 2030 World Cup.
