Description: Estadio de Bata

One of two stadiums built in 2007 by China. General contractor was renowned company Covec who erected stands for 22,000 people with partial cover. But as Equatorial Guinea was preparing to host the 2012 African Cup of Nations, the ground was enlarged. Concrete stands received a second tier of steel, all covered. Tall floodlight masts were changed for lighting integrated into the roof.

With capacity of 35,700 people it’s currently the largest stadium in the country. This enabled it to host the Women’s African Championship twice, in 2008 and 2012.
