Capacity change

The stadium's original capacity was 15,000 but it is currently being expanded which will increase its capacity and make it into an ultra-modern air-conditioned sporting arena. The expansion project also includes two residential towers to be built on the stadium. Half of the project was completed by December 2006 and the stadium hosted the 18th Gulf Cup of Nations. The UAE, host of the 18th Gulf Cup, won the tournament in the stadium which held 24,000 spectators. The final stages of the stadium expansion are currently underway.
