Aspire Dome – The world’s largest indoor sports facility.
The Competition will be held in The ASPIRE Academy Dome!
Originally constructed in Doha to support the 15th Asian Games, the ASPIRE Dome is the world’s largest indoor sports facility. The free-standing, 46-meter-high dome houses a football stadium, a track-and-field arena (including a 200-meter track), a swimming stadium, eight fencing pistes, two sports halls, three martial arts arenas, 13 table tennis courts and two squash courts. Within the various halls, there is space up to 15,000 spectators.
The roof is clad in Reynobond® Architecture aluminum composite panels from Alcoa Architectural Products. Underneath the Reynobond® Architecture panel, the roof was sealed with a prefabricated standing seam system to guard against the penetration of water or, even more importantly, against the sand. For aesthetic reasons, the standing seam system was then completed with the overlaying composite panels from Reynobond® Architecture, providing a finish for practically the entire roof.
The Gymnastics Competitions during the 15th Asian Games, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and the 4th FIG ART World Cup 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 were also held in ASPIRE Academy Dome .
