Iran’s Most Advanced Football Stadium Opens in Ahvaz
14 November 2018
Foolad Arena, the most technologically advanced stadium of Iran, was officially opened in the south-western city of Ahvaz in Khuzestan province on Tuesday.
Foolad Arena’s most important feature is that it does not have a tartan running track unlike other Iranian stadiums. In fact, Foolad Arena has been only made for football matches, and there is no space between spectators and the field.
Now the stadium will serve as a great venue both for Foolad Khuzestan FC, and the Team Melli (national football team) as Iranian players can show a much better performance with the spectators closer to them.
The stadium has been built based on the standards of the day, and can host 30,000 spectators, which is a standard capacity.
Foolad Arena is also a very beautiful stadium with a design similar to that of Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in Madrid.
The modern stadium was launched in a ceremony attended by First Vice-President Es’haq Jahangiri and Sports Minister Massoud Soltanifar.
