Khalifa Stadium Redevelopment

The 40,000-seat Khalifa Stadium in Doha, Qatar was the central venue for the 2006 Asian Games. It hosted the Opening and Closing ceremony as well as the athletics and soccer competitions.

The western section of the existing Stadium was totally refurbished including the new roof membrane structure. Upgrading of the eastern stand’s facade was also done to unify the two separate stands.

An iconic lighting arch spans the Stadium to give it a unique character both regionally and internationally as well as creating a sense of excitement and atmosphere during evening events.
