SOCAR builds 65000-seat stadium


Baku. Elshen Mammadov - APA-Sport. State Oil Company of Azerbaijani Republic (SOCAR) plans to construct a 65000-seat stadium in Baku, youth and sports minister Azad Rahimov told a press conference today.
The minister stated that the venue has been allocated near Azizbeyov metro station. He said the new stadium will meet all international standards. Rahimov didn’t rule out the construction of one more stadium.
“We intend to nominate Azerbaijan for 2020 Summer Olympics. If we pass the first stage successfully, the infrastructure of the capital city will be reconsidered. I think, in this case it will be necessary to build one more stadium. Actually, the stadium to be built by SOCAR may be the venue for the opening and closing ceremonies. Nevertheless, I think we can build a stadium like Bird’s Nest that was venue of the 29th Olympic events in Beijing”, he said.
