Al Nahyan stadium[edit]

The Al Nahyan stadium is the home of Al Wahda, and although Al-Nahyan Stadium is perhaps less impressive in terms of infrastructure (12,000 seats) it still boasts a fervent atmosphere on match days and has the added advantage of being only three kilometres from the city centre.
