Al Bayt stadium, the second biggest Qatar World Cup venue is taking shape at a brisk pace and is likely to be completed by end of 2018. Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy tweeted a picture of the stadium to show the progress in work.
The design is an entirely Qatari concept and reflects Qatar’s history and culture. It will be an experience to any footballer or a fan.
The stadium has the capacity to hold around 60,000 people, which includes an upper tier of removable seats. The seats will be donated after the tournament to the developing nations across the world.
After the tournament has been won and lost, the upper concourse of the stadium will be converted into a hotel. A shopping centre will also be incorporated into the structure.
The stadium will also benefit the local community once the capacity is reduced, as it will create space for facilities that will attract visitors to this coastal community.
