We're back today with another video in our series of interesting facts about Qatar's World Cup stadia. Third in our series is Khalifa Interantional Stadium located in Aspire Zone.

The incredible thing about Khalifa is that it was already state-of-the-art, but it was deemed not good enough, so they ripped it up and started again. It will now go from being a 40,000 seater stadium to having a capacity of more than 68,000.

Located in Al Rayyan Municipality, Khalifa International Stadium has long played a leading role in Qatar's development as a premier host of major sporting events.

The Aspire Zone Foundation, one of the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC)'s stakeholders, is leading construction works on Khalifa International Stadium.

Originally built as a 20,000-seater stadium in 1976, work on Khalifa International Stadium was rushed to host the Gulf Cup that year. It has hosted bigger events ever since including the Asian Games in 2006.

Work continues to advance with a priority placed on health and safety practices on site, with around 3,300 men working tirelessly to make sure that the World Cup in Qatar is a success.
