World Cup 2022: Stadium 974 is set for demolition

The Qatar Stadium 974, which is built with 974 containers, is set for demolition following the conclusion of the match between South Korea and Brazil.

The match between South Korea and Brazil in Round of 16 ended 4-1 in favor of the South Americans and that will be the stadium’s final match.

The stadium, built with the capacity of 40,000, was built specifically for the World Cup and hosted seven matches during the tournament.

Apart from its name, which comes from the number of containers used to build it, it also signifies Qatar’s international dialing code.

974’s stunning design with multi-coloured shipping containers which house restrooms and formed the internal structure, gives the stadium an industrial outlook.

The venue is also the only World Cup stadium in Qatar that was not air-conditioned, and thus only hosted evening matches.
