El-Minia Stadium – design description
New stadium for Minya city and local sports club is being built north of the city, along main road to Cairo and just 700m west of the mighty Nile River.
It will replace former municipal stadium, which was demolished in late summer of 2015. Very traditional in terms of stands layout, this stadium will be a landmark project in Egypt, as the country currently has no major stadium with covered stands. In this case the cover is also distinctive aesthetically because of its raised height on both ends, an effort to fit giant screens under the roof.
Another interesting feature is the system of four ramps leading fans inside on the east side, from which vast majority of fans will enter the venue.
Construction work was to take around 18 months to be completed in autumn 2017, with the price of the stadium estimated at 300 million Egyptian pounds. In 2017, when only parts of the east stand and the foundations of the west stand were ready, work was stopped and has not been resumed ever since.
