The stadium will be the main venue for the 15th Iran National Paralympic Day, which takes place next Sunday.
The 15th National Paralympic Day Ceremony will be held on 16 October 2022 by NPC IRI in order to encourage the male & female kids, children and youth towards the Paralympic Sports and its meditation across 31 provinces, while spotlight would be in the national capital at the Azadi Indoor Stadium, officially named Azadi 12,000 Capacity Hall.
The 12,000 all-seater historic and iconic stadium has been the home of this special occasion several times and this year will also serve as NPD’s centerpiece. This indoor stadium is located within the Azadi Sport Complex in Tehran, Iran.
The APC President and other dignitaries will attend the Ceremony
This year, the APC President Majid Rashed together with the APC Chief Executive Officer Tarek Souei will attend the festival in and off the Azadi Indoor Stadium to watch thousands of people with impairments gather to play and celebrate Para sports.
The number of people with different impairments who attend such a ceremony has increased markedly during recent years in Iran and setting the stage of this exciting event with the size of more than 60,000 participants throughout the country has tremendous impact for the target population, and this venue will be a memorable place for spectators in Tehran.
As for the type of work underway at the stadium all preparations have entered their final stages and though National Paralympic week has started in Iran and NPD is just around the corner, the Azadi Indoor Stadium is fully ready to welcome fans and their families.
