Aspire Zone 

The Aspire Zone also known as Doha Sports City, is a 250-hectare sporting complex located in Al Waab district of Doha, Qatar. It was established as an international sports destination in 2003 and in the following year an educational centre for the development of sporting champions (the ASPIRE Academy for Sports Excellence) was opened. The complex contains several sporting venues, mostly constructed in preparation for the 2006 Asian Games.

These sporting venues include:
Khalifa International Stadium, a 50,000-capacity stadium primarily used for soccer matches.
Hamad Aquatic Center, an Olympic-size swimming pool.
