Stadium 974, built with 974 containers, is set to be demolished following the conclusion of the match between South Korea and Brazil.

The Round of 16 match between South Korea and Brazil ended 4-1 in favor of the South Americans and will be the stadium’s final match.

The stadium, which has a capacity of 40,000, was built specifically for the World Cup and hosted seven matches during the tournament.

Aside from its name, which comes from the number of containers used to build it, it also represents Qatar’s international dialing code.

974’s stunning design with multi-coloured shipping containers which house restrooms and formed the internal structure, gives the stadium an industrial outlook.

The venue is also the only World Cup stadium in Qatar that was not air-conditioned, and thus only hosted evening matches.
