Estadio de Malabo – stadium description

Built in 2007 with support from Chinese authorities, this stadium is effectively the national venue of Equatorial Guinea despite not being the country’s largest by a long run. Apart from the national team a large number of 6 football clubs make use of the ground located some 4 km from the city centre. And with a running track around the pitch it can also host other sports disciplines.

Four independent grandstands accommodate over 15,000 people, most of whom are covered by membrane roof. The stadium is supposed to be opened for citizens who are into sports, just like surrounding complex of tennis courts and several training pitches for football, basketball or handball. There also is a hotel nearby.

In 2012 the stadium was one of two in Equatorial Guinea to host games of the country’s first ever African Cup of Nations.
