Babil Stadium – design description
In 2011 Iraqi Ministry of Youth and Sports granted the implementation of new sports complex in Babil to Spanish consortium TriArena. Centrepiece of the complex will be a new 32,200-seat stadium. The venue designed by Javier Garcia Alda was initially to have single-tiered stands, but final layout will see it with two tiers.
The project of a "sports city" on the outskirts of Hillah started in June 2012 and the construction of the football stadium was estimated to cost about € 84 million. It was supposed to be ready in 2014, but after the completion of a part of the stands and the skeleton of the roof structure, work was stopped and the stadium remains unfinished until today.
