Baalbeck Municipal Stadium
Baalbeck Lebanon
Sport & Leisure

The Baalbeck Municipal Stadium was planned to be built as part of Lebanon's hosting bid of the 2000 AFC Asian Cup with a seating capacity of 20,000 spectators. The initial design also intended for a hotel, a therapeutic center and an equestrian competition center with associated facilities to be built as part of a major sports city contributing to the regional development of sports centers across Lebanon.

However, upon completion of the Tender documents and due to lack of funding, the Municipality of Baalbeck revised its requirements downwards to a smaller stadium with a 9,000 seat capacity. Revised studies were completed in 2001 with further updates made in 2003 following a revisited land allocation scheme, leading to a subsequent construction Tender Process.
