Developers have topped out a major construction project in Al Ain which includes a 25,000-seater sports stadium.

The mixed-use scheme, masterplanned and designed by Broadway Malyan, includes the Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium, which is set to open in December, the company said in a statement.

The stadium and mixed-use scheme will ultimately comprise over 1.5m sq ft of development including hospitality, commercial and residential space.

The stadium will be managed and operated by the Al Ain Club Investment Company and will be the new home ground for the famous Al Ain Football Club, the most successful club in the UAE.

Broadway Malyan is lead design consultant on the scheme, with its Abu Dhabi-based team having led the masterplan and design and delivery stages, a statement said.

Director Ian Apsley said: "Reaching the first major milestone in the construction of the scheme is testament to our world-class and integrated team of diverse design experts working in close partnership with the client to create a major new leisure and entertainment destination."

He said it is the latest project for the company following recent project wins in Doha, Qatar, and major commissions in Iraq and Bahrain.

These came on the back of the approval of its detailed masterplan for Al Maryah Island (formerly Sowwah Island), covering over 3.5 million sqm of mixed-use development and North Yas, a 680 hectare waterfront community on Yas Island.
