Built in 1979, Zayed Sports City (ZSC) National Stadium has a seated capacity of 43,000 and is the largest stadium in the UAE.
The Stadium was built to fulfil the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father and 1st president of the UAE. The upcoming 50th UAE Anniversary National Day event due to be held in December 2021 triggered the development plans for the refurbishment and modernisation of ZSC stadium.
Trivandi and Lagardere have been appointed as the client representative to establish the vision, design direction, delivery and modernisation of the future of ZSCS and its ongoing legacy. Following a design optioneering exercise the preferred development route is to deliver the refurbishment and masterplan works over a 2-stage construction phase, with the 1st phase in the lead up to the 2021 celebration soon followed by a 2ndlegacy phase build to be undertaken during 2022.
