The erecting of the world-class venue began in 2016 with the breaking of ground for the multi-purpose venue.
It was then officially inaugurated on 3 October 2020 in a ceremony attended by senior Government Ministers and officials before an exhibition match between two of the nation’s biggest clubs, Asec Mimosas and Africa Sports Abidjan.
In addition to its large hosting capacity, the Olympic Stadium is a multi-purpose venue that boast a number of world-class amenities such as an athletics track, conference facilities, gyms, auditorium and VIP.
