Ghana will be playing Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal at the 2022 FIFA World Cup which will be played in Qatar.
This was confirmed at the draw that was held on Friday, April 1, 2022 in Doha where Ghana was drawn in the same group as Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea.
Ghana will play its first match with Portugal and the match will be played at one of the most spectacular and iconic stadia in Qatar.
The stadium is known as the 974 Stadium and per what we gathered, it was been built from 974 shipping containers. The stadium is a 40,000 capacity stadium previously called Ras Abu Aboud Stadium.
The concept of the stadium was designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects. The stadium is constructed on a 450,000 square-meter waterfront site and is situated on an artificial promontory. It has a modular design, and incorporates 974 recycled shipping containers in homage to the site’s industrial history and the international dialing code for Qatar (+974).
Some of the containers house stadium amenities such as bathrooms and concessions. The shipping containers and seats used by the stadium are later to be dismantled and provided as assistance to other under-developed countries in the world; it is the first temporary venue in FIFA World Cup history.
The stadium will host seven matches during the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Check out some photos below;
