Al Menaa Sports Complex

Commissioned by the Iraqi Ministry of Youth and Sport, the 30,000-seat soccer stadium, training fields, roads, plazas and parking are being constructed under a design-build contract. The wave and sail concept for the Al-Menaa stadium reflects the culture and heritage of Basrah, which has a rich nautical tradition as Iraq's port city. The total site area is about 100,000 square meters (24 acres).
