President Ilham Aliyev has attended the opening of the Agsu city stadium.

The head of state cut the ribbon symbolizing the opening of the stadium.

The foundation of this modern sports facility was laid on 29 October 2009 during a visit by Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev and his wife Mehriban Aliyeva to Agsu District.

While reviewing the stadium, the President of Azerbaijan was informed that it has 3,000 seats and its stands are divided in four sectors. The artificial turf meets modern standards. High-level competitions can be conducted in the stadium. The stands are covered with metal structures for the convenience of fans. In addition, there are two mini-stadiums at the disposal of sportsmen. The stadium is equipped with four light boards and an electronic scoreboard. The complex also includes a café, an office building and auxiliary facilities.

The office building has a photo section reflecting the attention of nationwide leader Heydar Aliyev and President Ilham Aliyev to the development of sports in the country. There is a conference room, a medical station, changing and shower rooms here. The stadium is surrounded with a 840-meters fence which is faced with the Gulbakh stone. Particular attention has been paid to planting activities around the stadium.

This sports facility is further evidence of the care and attention the President has been paying to the physical, spiritual and moral health of the Azerbaijani youth. It will not only enhance interest in sports in Agsu, but also play a crucial role in the training of professional athletes.

Expressing his satisfaction with the conditions at the stadium, President Ilham Aliyev sent his congratulations and gave instructions.
