Al-Merrikh Stadium, also known as the red castle, is a multi-use stadium in Omdurman, Sudan. Established in 1962. The stadium is used mostly for football games and is considered the home stadium of both Al-Merrikh SC and the Sudan national team. Currently, the stadium has a capacity of 43,000.
The stadium officially opened on November 30, 1964. It had first opened in 1962 while still under construction to host a meeting between Al-Hilal Club and Al-Mourada SC for a national holiday in November 1962. It closed its doors after the festivities and was officially inaugurated two years later, on November 30, 1964 with a match between Al-Merrikh and Dynamo Moscow. In 2003, the Board of Al-Merrikh, chaired by Jamal Al-Wali, undertook the renovation of the stadium to build a new gallery and include new seats. The cost of its new renovations was estimated at 2 million dollars.
Al-Merrikh Stadium is located on Al-Baladya Street, Al-Arda (Arabic:العرضة) in the city of Omdurman, Sudan.
