EDGE has worked closely with the Bahrain Government including the General Organisation for Youth and Sport and the Ministry of Works to develop a stadium concept in line with FIFA international guidelines and that has been approved in principle for construction prior to the Gulf Cup 2013. The stadium has a distinctive tensile aesthetic for the roof form and this was developed to minimise scaffolding use and the subsequent disruption to the playing surface late in the construction programme.
