Stade du 18-Novembre – stadium description
Largest and most important stadium of Khemisset is located along the main artery from north to south, part of the R404 road. Main entrance, consisting of impressive arcades, is located beside that very road and leads to the eastern grandstand, one of two at the stadium. Topped by aesthetic arcades too, that stand is occupied by most vocal supporters.
On the other side of the field is a modest main grandstand along less than half the pitch. This one, with roughly 300 seats covered, offers amenities for the press, VIPs, players and regular spectators.
Nominal capacity most commonly attributed to this stadium is 10,000. Seems a lot for a venue with only two (and not big at all) grandstands. Especially that in 2013 it was converted into an all-seater and the number of seats – by our count – is 2,666. Still, tickets in Morocco aren’t sold only for seated areas, thus the actual capacity is closer to the 10,000, judging by matchday photos.
There were plans announced in 2014 that envisaged a new stand in the southern curve, though not big due to severely limited space.
