Stadium 974 (formerly Ras Abu Aboud Stadium) is a football stadium in Ras Abu Aboud, Doha, Qatar. Opened 30 November 2021, it is a temporary venue made from 974 recycled shipping containers that will host matches during the 2022 FIFA World Cup, after which it will be dismantled. It is the first temporary venue in FIFA World Cup history.
The concept of the stadium was designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects. The stadium is constructed on a 450,000 square-meter waterfront site and is situated on an artificial promontory. It has a modular design, and incorporates 974 recycled shipping containers in homage to the site's industrial history and the international dialing code for Qatar (+974). Some of the containers house stadium amenities such as bathrooms and concessions. The shipping containers and seats used by the stadium are later to be dismantled and provided as assistance to other under-developed countries in the world; it is the first temporary venue in FIFA World Cup history.
The stadium is one of eight being converted for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar 2022. The procurement process for the stadium conversion began in 2017. The construction of the stadium involved HBK Contracting Company (HBK), DCB-QA, Time Qatar, Fenwick Iribarren Architects (FI-A), Schlaich Bergermann Partner and Hilson Maron.
The stadium received a four-star rating from the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS). The stadium was initially announced under the name Ras Abu Aboud Stadium. During a launch event on 20 November 2021 the venue was officially renamed Stadium 974.
It hosted its first match on 30 November 2021 on the opening day of the 2021 FIFA Arab Cup, between the United Arab Emirates and Syria. The stadium hosted five matches during the tournament
