Doha’s Torch Hotel directly overlooks the reconstruction of the Khalifa International Stadium for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™. Naturally, when tasked to oversee this stadium rebuild, we saw The Torch Doha as an ideal vantage-point for one of our MKV3 camera systems.
The MKV3 camera is installed on the 50th floor of the hotel, at an elevation of 275 metres. It is a dizzying height, and will provide us with excellent footage to add to our eventual timelapse movie of the reconstruction.
Alongside the many upgrades and improvements being made to the stadium, its capacity is being doubled from 20,000 to 40,000. Looks like it will continue to make history as it has since 1976 when it was first built into the desert.
