The first air-conditioned stadium in Qatar

FIFA World Cup 2022 will take place in Qatar, where extremely hot temperatures in summer represented a major challenge for hosting the competition. That is why a FIFA taskforce decided that the competition would be held between November and December, when temperatures can still reach 30°C. More than 5 years before the World Cup kicks off, Qatar has completed the installation of its cooling technology in the Khalifa International Stadium, built in 1976 in Doha. The stadium has undergone a renovation estimated at GBP 70 million. The cooling technology relies on district cooling: nozzles bring chilled water from an energy centre located one kilometre away from the stadium. Tested during the Emir Cup final on May 19, 2017, temperatures reached 20°C on the field of play, and 23°C in the spectator stands.
