Saudi Arabia reveals high-tech stadium design atop cliff for 2034 World Cup

Geneva: Saudi Arabia revealed designs Monday for a high-tech stadium atop a 200-meter high cliff near Riyadh where the kingdom plans to stage games at the 2034 World Cup.

The 45,000-seat venue will be named Prince Mohammed bin Salman stadium for the crown prince of the kingdom that wants to become the major player in world sports over the next decade.

The design has a retractable roof and field, plus an LED wall with hundreds of meters (yards) of screens to create an immersive experience for fans, the Qiddiya Investment Company (QIC) said in a statement.

“The futuristic venue aims to reinvent the traditional stadium concept,” the QIC said.

The stadium is a centerpiece of the Qiddiya City project that aims to create an entertainment, gaming and sports hub 45 kilometers (30 miles) from downtown Riyadh, the Saudi capital.

The LED wall is designed to open out on to views of the city below, the QIC said.
