We are one of the biggest multi-purpose facilities in the world!
In terms of space, we are built upon a sprawling 24 hectares of land, on the Emirates Road, opposite the Global Village.
Our striking architecture with a contrast hue of blue, complemented with an outstanding landscape of diverse flora surrounding the complex, will make you feel as if in an oasis of a futuristic world.
In terms of facilities, our swimming and diving pools are of Olympic standards.
Boasting two 50-metre swimming pools, and the advanced technology of moveable floors, the swimming pools can be transformed into 25-metre pools at differing depth, at any one time by simply the touch of a button.
Equipped with diving stages at 10m, 7.5m, 5m, 3m and 1m, our diving tanks have since been acclaimed by some of the world’s most renowned divers.
In terms of flexibility, the venue can be converted into a dry land for non-aquatic and non-sports events.
With our advanced pool covering technology, where a strong foundation and sturdy surface is built to cover the pools, we have successfully hosted and managed world class events such as basketball, handball, volleyball, karate championships, high profile concerts, international conventions and exhibitions.
Having considered the needs of all of our stakeholders, from spectators, VIPs, the press, to our suppliers, the complex is complemented with royal VVIP lounges and executive boxes, press conference and a journalist working area, a fully functional medical room with state-of-the-art medical facilities, doping control room, parking areas for more than 1,600 cars, plus the capability of 4G and GSM provision to over 20,000 guests. We have it all to cater to your every need.
In terms of seating capacity, we have 15,000 spectator seats at the three-tier horseshoe-shaped seating bowl in the competition arena, overlooking the 10-lane Olympic-sized swimming pool and the separate Olympic-sized diving tank.
Adjacent to the competition arena is the training pool area with 500 spectator seats which guarantees a perfect view of our second 50m swimming pool.
In line with the Dubai’s vision of becoming one of the top most sustainable cities in the world, the construction of Hamdan Sports Complex takes into account ground breaking environmentally friendly technology.
All of our outdoor lights are solar-powered, our pools are consistently maintained at a temperature of 27°C by the sun, and our glass exterior allows for optimised natural light penetration especially for our offices and the main entrance at the first floor where it’s most required.
Above all, we at Hamdan Sports Complex, have big goals, of encouraging healthy and active lifestyles through aquatic activities, of promoting aquatics as one of the most essential sports in the UAE and providing a world stage for world class events in Dubai.
