|Other names||Buxoro Sport Majmuasi (2002-2012)|
Buxoro Arena – stadium description
Or this is how it was renamed in 2012, after just a decade of operation. This rather international name is a shift from traditional Uzbekistani Buxoro Sport Majmuasi. From the start this track and field offered all spectators individual seats, in total over 25,000.
Though it still looks like it did in 2002, first major lifting came in 2011, ahead of 2012 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup. Ironically, the tournament was eventually taken from Uzbekistan and given to Japan after trouble with other venues marred the Uzbekistani preparations.
New countries: Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan
Despite their considerable size, these two countries are somewhat unknown to people around the world. We cannot change this completely, but we can introduce some of their stadiums to our readers. Here they come. And worth mentioning – we now have 100 countries in Stadium DataBase!
