Stadium 974, originally Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, has been presented to the world in recent days. Why 974? Because it is built from 974 sea containers.

The Hamad International Airport expansion project is expected to be completed in 2022, in time for the FIFA World Cup. The project adds 11,720 m² of retail space, brimming with a wide variety of shopping and dining options.
