Estádio do Zimpeto – stadium description
New national stadium for Mozambique was inaugurated in 2011 some 15km from the centre of Maputo. As it usually happens with African countries, it was designed, constructed and financed by Chinese institutions. Total cost of $57 million allowed to create the country’s largest venue with 42,000 seats and one covered stand.
Around it extensive parking, training and residential infrastructure was created that combined creates Mozambique’s first ‘Olympic Village’. It was built in order to host the 2011 All-African Games.
