Designers chosen for world's largest football stadium

Designers chosen for world's largest football stadium

The World Cup in Spain, Portugal and Morocco is still a long way off, and bookmakers like Mostbet won't be accepting bets on qualifying games for a long time yet. But the infrastructure preparations start now.

The selection of designers to design the largest soccer stadium in the world is an important event, arousing the interest of art historians, sports enthusiasts and architecture lovers. The consortium of architects Populous and Oualalou + Choi won the coveted contract to design Morocco's Grand Stade de Casablanca, a stadium capable of accommodating a whopping 115,000 fans.

The upcoming championship will be unique because it will be hosted by three countries at once. Of course, most of the people of the world will watch the games on TV and place bets through the bookmaker Mostbet here or by using other bookmakers. But surely millions of people will want to attend this celebration of soccer in person, especially if they have the opportunity to get to the world's largest stadium.

The newest stadium breaks records for seating capacity and its modern facilities

Plans to build the largest soccer stadium in Morocco to host the 2030 FIFA World Cup games are impressive in scale and ambition. The stadium will be home to two local soccer clubs, underscoring its importance to the local sports infrastructure and potential for the development of soccer in the region.

Land work on the 100-hectare site, located in the city of El Mansuriya in the province of Bensliman, has already begun, following the approval of government funding in 2023. This demonstrates the country's serious commitment to developing its sports infrastructure and confirms the determination of the parties involved to deliver this impressive project on time and on budget.

The winning scheme, submitted by Oualalou + Choi and Populous, promises to create a structure inspired by traditional Moroccan public gatherings known as "moussems" of exceptional architectural beauty and functionality. The stadium will meet FIFA standards, allowing it to host major international competitions, including the 2030 FIFA World Cup. Moreover, the stadium could host the championship final.

The plans to build this stadium are not just a sports infrastructure project, but an important part of Morocco's development strategy. This significant achievement is expected to elevate the country to a new level on the world stage of sporting events, and the facility itself will be an important contribution to the global soccer family community.

Preserving and embodying cultural traditions

Casablanca's Grand Stadium is more than just a sports facility. It is a magnificent manifestation of Morocco's deep traditions and cultural values. In its design, you can see the embodiment of centuries-old Moroccan traditions, from ancient public gatherings, to symbols of life in tents and peace in the shade of fragrant gardens.

The stadium is imbued with specific cultural motifs that emphasize its respect for nature and the hospitality characteristic of Moroccan culture. Its spacious and open space is designed to bring people together and inspire them with natural beauty, protecting and preserving its uniqueness.

The unique features of the stadium show that the design of the project has not only taken into account sporting and technical aspects - it has also become a truly significant symbol for the local community and part of their cultural heritage.

And we can already say with certainty that the new arena will be no less popular than Premier League stadiums or other iconic "temples of soccer" around the world.
