This is another eminent stadium in the country and it is most suited for first class cricket competition. Unlike the counterpart in Sharjah, this stadium came into existence in 2004 and this means that it is one of the most innovative stadiums in the country. It was named after Sheikh Zayad bin Sultan Al Nahyan who was the former president of the country. It is not surprising that this stadium was selected as one of the venues for the forthcoming UAE T20x. The stadium is not located in the city, as you have to travel at least thirty minutes away from the city before you can reach the location.
The stadium can accommodate at least twenty thousand spectators at a time. Its end provides standing area and this makes for additional standing area.
Though the stadium was constructed more than a decade and half ago, it is one of the finest cricket grounds in the world today. When the stadium was built in the year 2004, it took more than twenty two million dollars to be concluded.
This stadium is spacious enough and it can accommodate plenty numbers of spectators at a time. This is not the first time this stadium has hosted international and local events. Right from the time the construction was done, it started to host international events. There is no way such an international event can be organized in the country without using this stadium. It is one of the best in the country.
