It’s over a month ahead of schedule, Al Rayyan Stadium saw its first concrete pouring on Friday. In 2022 the stadium will be part of Qatar’s World Cup.
Al Rayyan Stadium, the proposed host venue through to the quarter-finals for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, achieved a major milestone today as the first concrete was poured at the location of the stadium’s west stand five weeks ahead of schedule.
The main contractor for Al Rayyan Stadium is a joint venture between Qatar-based Al-Balagh Trading & Contracting Company and Indian construction company Larsen & Toubro.
The concrete pouring signifies the commencement of a new phase in the construction of the stadium of one of Qatar’s most popular sports clubs, after starting the foundation excavation, said a statement from the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC).
Over 100,000 m3 of concrete and 6,700 tons of structural steel will be used during this phase of the project. Works on the road connecting the stadium with the nearby mall and other services surrounding the precinct are also nearing completion.
