Description: King Abdullah Stadium

Second largest stadium in Amman (and the country, in fact), this one can hold up to 18,000 people, though vast majority only have terracing available, with minority under cover at the main stand. The venue dates back to 1998 and was intended to look like a fortification both from the outside and inside, with its tall wall over the stands.

Soon after opening it played host to first ever West Asian Championship in 2000, being the final venue again in 2010. Day-to-day use is provided by four local clubs, with national team using this stadium as well.
