For many years the principal stadium in Marrakech was the Stade El Harti. The ‘Stade de Marrakech’ was conceived as part of the Moroccan bid for the 2010 football world cup, a tournament which was eventually held in South Africa.
With a capacity of 45,000 the impressive new stadium, home to the Marrakech KACM football club will officially open in January 2011. The stadium is multi use with an athletics track around the grass pitch.
If you are planning a visit to Marrakech why not stay in one of our converted Riad hotels in the old town.
