Stadium 974 has been officially unveiled and will host its first match on 30 November when the UAE and Syria go head-to-head on the opening day of the FIFA Arab Cup.

Stadium 974 is the seventh tournament venue to be completed by the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) and follows Khalifa International, Al Janoub, Education City, Ahmad Bin Ali, Al Bayt and Al Thumama in being declared ready to host matches during the FIFA World Cup 2022, which will kick off on 21 November next year.

The venue – formerly known as Ras Abu Aboud – is made primarily from shipping containers and is located close to Doha Port, directly opposite the West Bay skyline. The innovative design means this is the first stadium that can be fully dismantled in FIFA World Cup history.
