Take a look at the magnificent stadium built out of shipping containers that will host the World Cup match between Portugal and Ghana in Qatar.
Ghana’s Black Stars will face Portugal, a former European champion, in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Qatar.
This was verified at the 2022 World Cup draw in Doha, as the Black Stars were placed in the same group as Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea.
The team will meet Portugal in its opening encounter, which will be held at one of Qatar’s most stunning and renowned stadiums.
The stadium is called the 974 Stadium, and it was created out of 974 shipping containers, according to our information. The stadium, formerly known as Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, has a capacity of 40,000 people.

Fenwick Iribarren Architects came up with the stadium’s concept. The stadium is built on an artificial peninsula and sits on a 450,000-square-meter waterfront plot. In honor of the site’s industrial history and the international dialing code for Qatar (+974), it has a modular design and contains 974 recycled shipping containers.
The stadium’s amenities, such as bathrooms and food, are housed in some of the containers. The stadium’s shipping containers and seats will be removed and donated to other underdeveloped countries across the world; it is the first temporary venue in FIFA World Cup history.
During the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the stadium will host seven matches. Take a look at the photographs below:
