The project was developed on 30 acres of land donated by the developer constructing the Ghazi Amanullah Khan Township, cost up the first phase of construction $1.8 million. The first phase, which took one year to complete, included the completion of the stadium itself. The remainder of the phases will see the construction of a pavilion, accommodation for players and administrative buildings.
The stadium, which has a capacity of 14,000, was completed before the national team and under-19 team left for Canada and the Under-19 Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Ireland respectively. The two sides inaugurated the stadium in a Twenty20 match.
It is hoped that the stadium will be able to attract international teams to play Afghanistan, who currently have One Day International status until at least 2018.
