Description: Beirut Municipal Stadium

Located just 500 meters north from the national stadium it isn't part of the same sports complex. On the contrary, it lies in the heart of one of the most densely populated districts of Beirut. It's overcrowded to the extent that in 2010 it was suggested to tear the stadium down just to build parking lots with leisure space atop to bring any light to this location.

But so far it stands and it's not that hard to understand why – built in just 1997 and renovated in recent years with seats and partial cover it's still among the best in Lebanon. Not going to remain on the list for long, though, as its very simple structure has many drawbacks – something one might expect from a stadium built in just over 70 days (!).
