Al-Hamadaniah Stadium – stadium description

Built in 1986 it was supposed to stand in the shadow of Aleppo International Stadium, but the greater arena's construction was halted for many years. Thus, it was Al-Hamadaniah Stadium Aleppo's largest sporting venue with initial capacity of up to 30,000 people (18,000 after transformation into all-seater).

This means that events of both the 1987 Mediterranean Games and 1992 Pan Arab Games were staged here, not mentioning numerous games by the national teams. Also local derby rivals Al-Horriya and Al-Ittihad were hosting most of their games here for many years until Al-Ittihad moved to the finished International Stadium in 2007, though still stages some minor fixtures here.
