STADIUM 974 lies disused under a year after hosting World Cup matches in Qatar.
The ambitious new-build was heralded as Qatar’s “beacon of sustainability” ahead of last year’s tournament.
It hosted seven matches during the finals, including winners Argentina’s 2-0 win over Poland.
The last game played there was Brazil’s 4-1 round of 16 thumping of South Korea.
Work quickly began on dismantling the stadium, which could be reassembled in another continent for more World Cup matches.
As of last month, however, the largely intact remains of Stadium 974 could still be seen in its original spot in Doha.
The ground was primarily built using 974 repurposed shipping containers.
This number is significant, as 974 is Qatar’s dialling code.
The mooted plan is to transport the shipping containers to Uruguay, where Stadium 974 could be reassembled.
Uruguay want to host World Cup matches in 1930, 100 years after staging the inaugural tournament.
It is involved in a joint bid with Argentina, Chile and Paraguay.
Stadium 974 could hold up to 44,089 fans during the World Cup in Qatar.
Uruguay reportedly hope that the sustainability factor of reusing a stadium could help sway voters.
Their bid is up against a joint effort from Spain, Morocco, Portugal and Ukraine.
Among the six matches were Tunisia’s semi-final win over Egypt and the third place play-off between the Pharaohs and Qatar.
