Qatar is building a "reusable" stadium for the 2022 FIFA World Cup

Qatar is building a "reusable" stadium made of containers used to transport goods by ship for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

✔ 40,000-seat

 ✔ will be made from about 1,000 shipping containers  

When the World Cup is over, the stadium can be taken apart to make several smaller venues or moved to another country for another event.

This will be the first World Cup stadium that can be reused in this way. The stadium was designed by Spain's Fenwick Iribarren Architects, and is expected to be cheaper and easier to build than other stadiums, with less waste.

It is often difficult for nations to use new venues after big sporting events end. Russia spent a record $14 billion on the 2018 World Cup, and while most of the stadiums are still used by local soccer teams, a few are already having trouble staying open, and one was badly damaged by rain the same day the World Cup ended.

About 30,000 people are working on World Cup stadiums and training sites in Qatar. However, human rights groups are worried about how the workers, many of whom are from foreign countries, are being treated.
