The first Stadium for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has been completed.
The venue has been updated with modern facilities including the installation of cooling technology which was highlighted by the Arabians in the bid for the tournament.
The venue, Doha’s Khalifa International Stadium was first built in 1976 and has now been expanded to a sitting capacity of 40,000. The stadium was also largely renovated for a reported cost of £70million.
According to the organizing committee Qatar 2022 the much-vaunted cooling technology will keep the pitch at a temperature of 26 degrees Celsius and the stands at 24-28 degree while using 40 per cent less energy than other cooling systems.
