Al-Hamadaniah Stadium (Arabic: ملعب الحمدانية‎) is an all-seater multi-purpose stadium in Aleppo, Syria. It is mostly used for football matches and has a capacity of 15,000 spectators.

Al-Hamadaniah stadium serves as a home ground for Hurriya SC and sometimes for Al-Ittihad Aleppo as well. It hosted many of Syria national football team's matches before the inauguration of Aleppo International Stadium.

The venue can also stage athletics tournaments with its up-to-date track and filed facilities.

Al-Hamadaniah Stadium is part of the al-Hamadaniah Sports City. Since 2007, the stadium is served with a nearby football training ground which has an artificial turf with 816 seats.

History[edit]

As part of the Al-Hamadaniah Sports City, the construction of the stadium was launched in 1982. It was completed and opened in 1986 to host the football competition of the 1987 Mediterranean Games.[1]

In 1992, it was the main venue of the football competition at the 7th Pan Arab Games.

The stadium had been the regular home ground of the Syria national football team during the 1990s.

The original capacity of the stadium was 25,000. However, after the renovation in 2008, it was turned into an all-seater stadium and the capacity was reduced to 15,000.
