Qatar's Cooling Technology Passes Test During World Cup Watch Parties In Doha
More than 15,000 people have attended the "cooled, open-air" Brazil 2014 Fan Zone in Doha to watch games "across 10 nights from the round of 16" through to the final, according to THE PENINSULA. The open-air Fan Zone was used by the Qatar Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy to "test the prototype cooling technology" that will be utilized at the 2022 World Cup. The results from the tests have been "incredibly positive, with temperatures on average 12 degrees Celsius lower inside the Fan Zone." The data will be utilized by the committee's technical team as "part of its research and development to deliver the cooling technology" at the 2022 World Cup (THE PENINSULA, 7/15).
