China Railway Construction Corporation (CRCC) has won a contract to build a stadium for Qatar's 2022 World Cup, the state-owned company said Tuesday.

It is the first time for a Chinese company to build a World Cup venue, CRCC International Limited chairman Zhuo Lei said.

A joint venture between the CRCC and Qatar-based HBK Contracting will be the main contractor for the stadium in Lusail, a coastal city in Qatar.

The contract is worth 767 million U.S. dollars in total, with the Chinese company accounting for 45 percent.

With a contract period of 40 months, the 92,000-seat stadium is designed to be the world's largest membrane-structure building, incorporating 45,000 square meters of membrane. About 100,000 tonnes of steel will be used in the building.
