If you’re one of the many soccer-mad Aussies who eagerly await each World Cup every four years, you’ll know that Qatar has won the bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.Oil-rich Qatar has exploded on to the international scene recently, as a rapidly growing country with a wide reach in the sporting world.
The 2022 World Cup will be the 22nd edition of the major sporting event, but the first hosted in the Middle East.
How does steel play a part in this historical event for Qatar?
As a continually developing state, Qatar’s government has invested hundreds of billions of dollars in creating purpose-built infrastructure and stadia for the World Cup to be played in.
Nine of the 12 planned stadiums for the Qatar World Cup are being built from scratch, with the Lusail Iconic Stadium’s eye-catching design the most impressive new build of all.
You could say that steel is the most important foundation of the success of this major sporting event, and on the sustainability front, serves a double purpose, as 100% of the steel being used to build the stadium is recyclable.
Why this event is so pivotal for Qatar
With the FIFA World Cup being the world’s most watched sporting event, reaching hundreds of millions of viewers in over 200 countries worldwide and hosting over three million stadium visitors – it is an immense opportunity for Qatar to showcase its skills, and give steel the chance to shine on such a mammoth platform. Some of the world’s best architects and steel experts will work closely to put on a show that spectators won’t forget.
