Why is the World Cup stadium in Qatar called Stadion 974?

Designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects, the stadium is built on the waterfront in Ras Abu Aboud.

The modern stadium will first host Mexico against Poland on Tuesday 22 November and then host countries such as France, Brazil and Argentina as well as a round of 16 throughout the tournament.

The unique name is due to its never-before-seen design as the stadium contains 974 recycled shipping containers. This number is important as 974 is the country code for Qatar.

The stadium was previously called Ras Abu Aboud Stadium before the name change.

These containers contain amenities like restrooms and concessions and will be dismantled after the World Cup.

Once dismantled, the 40,000-seat sustainable stadium will use the seats and containers to help other developing countries.
