Dhofar’s Al Sa’ada sports complex

Oman last year tendered four new stadium projects across the country. While the government announced it plans to construct two new sports complexes in the governorates of North A’Sharqiyah and South Al Batinah and a new stadium in Mussandam, the existing Al Sa’ada Sports complex in Dhofar is also in for a substantial expansion.

The new projects are aimed at fulfilling the government’s vision of giving young people the opportunity to practice different sports and youth activities while enabling the sports unions and clubs to host continental and international championships and domestic league matches in world class facilities.

The new Mussandam stadium will be in Khasab and will include a 12,000-capacity international-standard football stadium and associated facilities such as fitness halls and media facilities, according to media reports.

The Al Batinah project will include a 17,000-seat international-standard football stadium, a training ground, hockey pitch, two tennis courts, a covered olympic pool and multi-purpose gymnasium as welll as medical centres and fitness facilities at A’Rustaq. The gym will have a capacity for around 1,100 spectators and can be used for events such as handball, volleyball and basketball.

The North A’Sharqiyah project will contain a new 12,000-capacity football stadium, fitness halls, conference rooms and media facilities, with potential for a new multi-purpose sports hall to be added later.

Finally, the existing stadium at Al Sa’ada is to see its seating capacity doubled to 18,000, with a view to a future increase of around 25,000. Utilities at the stadium will also be upgraded.
