Al-Hamadaniah Sports Arena (Arabic: صالة الحمدانية الرياضية‎‎) is an indoor sports hall in Aleppo, Syria. With a seating capacity of 8,000, it is the largest indoor hall in Syria. It is designated to host basketball, handball and volleyball matches.[1] Al-Hamadaniah Sports Arena is part of the al-Hamadaniah Sports City.

The arena is served by 4 additional indoor sports training halls.


The construction process was launched in 2004 and scheduled to be completed in 2007.[2] However, it was delayed for many years due to the corruption among the members of the Aleppo branch of the Syrian General Sports Federation.[3]

It was finally completed in 2012.

The playground of the arena has a length of 60 metres and a width of 25 metres.
