I was invited by friends the other day to go to Jaber stadium, to take pictures of the first match to take place there. Ofcourse it’s an unofficial match between friends, but nevertheless, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

The stadium is big and beautiful (I thought it would be bigger though), plenty of parking space and many gates to let the cars in, and many ticket kiosks scattered around the parking area. I think they did a good job avoiding future congestions.

Yeah well someone gotta lose. Our team did 😛

    The pics look good, its sad that the infrastructure might still be sinking and the setup of the whole building was a disaster, I don’t what they decided to go with as for the ticketing system or networking system.

  19. kwt23 says:

    I don’t want to be cynical here – the stadium does look really cool – but Stadiums that have the crowds very close to the pitch tend to be much more fun and make for a better atmosphere.

  20. Yousef says:

    Q80 In Denver lol yes we were told and we were pretty surprised to see it on papers that morning!

    Kaleedo thanks for the link 🙂

    kwt23 Agreed

    This is a National Stadium .. and even Kuwait National team never stood foot on this turf, but you guys had the chance to do so.

    So who are your guys .. what are you representing? ..
