Description: Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium
Construction of the stadium in northern Al Ain began in the second half of 2012. New stadium for 25,000 spectators is to be built within just 16 months by Dutch contractor BAM.
The most distinctive features of the ground are the elegantly contoured roof and stands with unique seating layout. With varying height the bowl has one, two or even three tiers of seating, all topped with pavilions overlooking the pitch, some of which will be used as skyboxes, while other as larger lounges.
Apart from the stadium a new training centre is to be built (behind the north end), 2,000 parking spots and a small office block (south) and a residential estate (west).

Emirates: Extremely tight project to be done in 2013
It’s expected to house 25,000 people. Not impressive? But it also costs €145 million, roughly twice as much as stadia of this size are built for. And German contractors only had 16 months to build it. They’re doing very well and will be done this year.
