The 28-month contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately IQD 2.6 billion ($2.2 million).
The new Olympic-sized, 20,000-seat stadium, which will be designed to comply with FIFA standards, is expected to have a construction cost of approximately IQD 70.9 billion ($61.0 million). This is the third sports stadium in Iraq whose construction is being managed by Hill.
