Stade Mimoun Al Arsi – stadium description

The stadium was erected in early 1950s. Soon afterwards it was occupied by Chabab, the team using it to this date. Central location in Al Hoceima meant good access, but also constraints in terms of future expansions. To date the stadium has only two stands, south and north of the pitch.

The southern main grandstand has an indoor hall integrated to it and offers a very modest amount of cover to spectators. The north side is fully covered after the 2010 renovation. During that upgrade the stadium received its synthetic turf. In total the project cost 50 million dirhams, but possible improvements are still expected. One of them is a 48-bed hotel for the sporting personnel.

Because the stadium was built under Spanish protectorate, it also has a second name, used more commonly – Estadio Chipula.
