TEHRAN – The inauguration ceremony of Foolad Arena was attended by Iran's Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Masoud Soltanifar and First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri on Tuesday.

The 30,000-seat stadium, located northeast of Ahvaz, has been constructed at a cost of one million dollars.

 From now on, Foolad’s home matches will be played at the 22-hectare stadium.

Foolad Arena will be inaugurated in January 2019 in the match against Persepolis in Iran Professional League.

“We are very happy to participate in an inauguration ceremony of a classy stadium. Now, Ahvaz city has two modern stadiums, namely Ghadir and Foolad Arena. We can host the international events in the stadiums as we hosted the final match of the AFC Champions League in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium between Persepolis and Kashima Antlers,” Soltanifar said.

 Foolad Arena includes 30,000 and 5,000 capacity football stadiums, training camp, futsal arena, volleyball and basketball halls and two pools which one of them opened in 2012.

The project includes cafeterias, restrooms, including access for the handicapped, press area, convention center, and a trophy room.
