The Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) has awarded the contract to manufacture the seats for three of the 2022 FIFA World Cup proposed host venues to Coastal Qatar, a specialised Qatari manufacturing and construction company.
The seats will be manufactured in a state-of-the-art factory based in Industrial Area that will produce 500 seats a day to cater to three proposed host venues: Al Wakrah Stadium, Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor City and Al Rayyan Stadium.
State-of-the-art polymer injection moulding machinery technique is being used to manufacture the seating. The process is fully-automated, reducing the risk of health and safety issues while improving efficiency.
The details about the project were given by officials from SC and Coastal Qatar in an event to inaugurate the manufacturing unit of the seats yesterday.
The event was attended by representatives of major stakeholders.
