Stade Municipal de Kénitra – stadium description
Main stadium of western city of Kenitra (near Rabat) is situated close to the historic centre of the agglomeration. Together with side fields, tennis courts and large hippodrome the stadium forms a large leisure complex.
Opened in 1941, it hasn't changed much since the opening. To date only two stands were built along the field of play and one of them is covered. There are plans of expanding it by building north and south curves, reaching up to 25,000 people, mostly standing. To date the last major changes are floodlights and artificial field, the latter installed in 2008.
The municipal stadium is known best for local club KAC's supporters, whose vibrant support thunders from the eastern terrace. Helala Boys are a distinctive community in Morocco as their support resembles that from Latin America to some extent.
