The Āzādi Sport Complex (Persian: مجموعه ورزشی آزادی‎) formerly known as Āryāmehr Sport Complex (Persian: مجموعه ورزشی آریامهر‎) is the national sports complex of Iran based in Tehran. It is the biggest sports complex in Iran. The massive Azadi Stadium is located within the walls of this complex. It was designed by Abdol-Aziz Mirza Farmanfarmaian along with the San Francisco office of Skidmore, Owings & Merill, and constructed by Iran's Arme Construction Company.

The complex was initially built for the 1974 Asian Games, with a future Olympic Games bid in mind. A year later it was showcased as Tehran's short-lived bid to host the 1984 Summer Olympics.[1]
