Stadium returfed in record time

Stadium returfed in record time

THE Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) and Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) set a new world record for returfing the Khalifa International Stadium by managing to lay the FIFA World Cup host venue’s 7,800sqm pitch in 13-and-a-half hours.

The new record obliterated the AZF’s own previous best set last year while returfing the Al Sadd Stadium in 14hr, 40min.

The renovated 40,000-seat stadium, which has hosted several top competitions and events, will be opened next month when players take to the new turf for the first time.
