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.

The annual  festival of Moroccan Popular Arts will be in its 46th year in 2011.  The music and culture of every region of Morocco is represented with performances all over the Red City.  The El Badi Palace is a particular focus and its intimate courtyards will be filled with performers and spectators.

Our superbly restored Riads in the heart of the old town are the perfect base from which to explore the Medina of Marrakech. Reserve your luxury accommodation today and be sure of a truly warm moroccan welcome!
