Stade 1er Novembre 1954 – stadium description

Named to celebrate the onset of Algerian Revolution, the largest stadium in the mountain city of Tizi-Ouzu wasn't built as early as the name might suggest, it opened its doors for the first time in 1978. Stuck between the hills and dense architecture, the ground is part of a larger sports complex with indoor hall and minor pitches for other disciplines.

Although modernised in 2007 (with synthetic turf and repainting being major changes), it never became an all-seater, having only a modest number of seats in the honorary tribune. With the rest remaining terracing, capacity has been at 20,000 from the start.

The stadium's meaning is to decline largely in 2015, when a new 45,000-capacity stadium is to be opened outside the city.
