The magnificent Mohamed bin Zayed Stadium will serve as the venue for all W Cup matches in Abu Dhabi. Named after the current President of the United Arab Emirates, H.H. Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, this multi-purpose stadium stands as an architectural marvel and a symbol of sporting glory. It has been Al Jazira’s home since 1980, undergoing significant renovations and expansion in 2009. Boasting a colossal capacity of 37,000 seats, it proudly holds the title of the largest club football stadium in the United Arab Emirates, second only to Zayed Sports City in overall size.

Executed by a company with a rich history of global projects, the stadium underwent the ‘UK Soccer Experience,’ resulting in a world-class facility.

Affectionately referred to as the “Glory Stadium,” this venue has hosted numerous historic matches and celebrated victories for various UAE national teams. It played a pivotal role in events such as the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship, the 2009 and 2010 FIFA Club World Cups, and the AFC Cup of Nations in 2019. Very soon, it will add another milestone to its illustrious history by hosting the inaugural edition of the W Cup, featuring four hosting national football teams: Egypt, Croatia, Tunisia, and New Zealand.
