Maysan Stadium, is a multi-use stadium in Maysan, Iraq. The stadium holds 25,000 people and was opened in 1987.

Renovation[edit]

Post-2003, plans were made to renovate the stadium. However, until 2011, the stadium was untouched. In 2011, work on the stadium started. The project included rehabilitating the VIP area, the pitch, placing 25,000 seats, new running track, a roof construction covering the entire stadium and more facilities within the stadium borders.

Renovation work stopped rather soon due to the lack financial resources. In 2016, work restarted and on July 22 of 2017, the stadium was officially opened. Although the roof construction has not been completed yet.

Tenant[edit]

Naft Maysan will most likely play most of their home games at this stadium.
