Sheikh Khalifa football stadium on track

June 14 - The Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi, is on track, said some of its bidders on Sunday, adding that the stadium that has been put on hold is the one on Sir Baniyas Island. "I have been receiving numerous calls on this rumour but the project is going ahead as scheduled," said one bidder. "The project in question is the football stadium on the Sir Baniyas Island, which is under Musanada as the client. We are still awaiting the shortlist on the Zayed Stadium."


Other bidders also said that the rumour that the stadium had been put on hold is just that – a rumour. "I have double checked with other bidders. And as far as we know, the project is still ongoing," said another bidder.


The billion-dollar football stadium project is being developed by the Abu Dhabi Government-owned investment firm Mubadala Development Company.
The qualifying groups for the tender include France's Bouygues with Arabian Construction Company, South Korea's Samsung Corporation, Germany's Ed Zueblin, Japan's Taisei Corporation, Beijing-based China State Construction Engineering Corporation, France's Vinci Grands Projets with Athens-based Consolidated Contractors Company and China's Sinohydro Corporation.
