Bakcell Arena – stadium description

Construction was started in April 2010 in the 8km district (8th Kilometer), east of Baku’s old town. This is where stadium’s name comes from as it’s the district’s largest venue.

Despite its modest size it boasts 17 skyboxes that occupy much of the upper tier of seating. Extensive infrastructure leaves 200 seats for media representatives and 300 parking bays – a lot for a stadium that had to be built on the very small plot between two local schools.

It was opened in September 2012 by President Aliyev, just a week before its first international tournamentU17 Women’s’ World Cup. Eventually it is to house one of the Azerbaijani top league teams.
