The Tunis Sports City is an entire sports city currently being constructed in Tunis, Tunisia. The city that will consist of apartment buildings as well as several sports facilities will be built by the Bukhatir Group at a cost of $5 Billion (5.86 Billion Dinars).

Construction began in 2008.[1] after being approved by the former Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.[2]

The site is located in the Lac de Tunis area in the northern suburbs of the city. The entire site is currently an uninhabited green space. The Lac de Tunis area is the major focus for new development and building activity in Tunis, and the area has seen as increasing number of multi-national companies setting up offices in the area. The site is bordered by two roads, the main Rue de Lac on one side and the motorway connecting Tunis with the suburbs on the other.

The first part of the project, namely the residential project "Cedar," will be completed in a two-year period. It is a housing district made up of 11 high-rise apartment buildings, approximately 50 standard villas and grand villas, as well as 13 blocks of low-rise townhouses/apartments which will be called the village. The Tunis Sports City, which will cover an area of 257 hectares, will encompass several spaces of entertainment activities through academies in various sport disciplines like tennis, golf and swimming.

The project also includes sports academies, a 20,000 capacity football stadium, a swimming centre with an olympic swimming pool, a thalassatherapy centre, in addition to an indoors sports services centre.
