Well if you consider the recent projects, it doesn't include any, it's just to show where Qatar is for our forumer who doesn't know where it is. I'd say it's around 4-5 years old, somethin like that.

How do you define a sports dome, I know the millenium dome in London is being converted into a sports / events arena and is officialy the worlds biggest dome, is this bigger than the millenium dome or are you simply putting the definition on 'purpose built sports dome'

Sorry for being a pedantic pillock just wanted some clarification!
To be honest with you I have no idea who qualified it as the world's biggest sports dome. Maybe as you said its the largest purpose built sports dome ?!?

And New Amestrdam thanks a lot man for the pics !!

This will mostly be used for the upcoming Asian Games, later it would be used by Aspire Sports Acadmy, a boarding school that does nothign but teach sports !!

I think this is mainly for the Asian games. That's why they've built it so big

Looks pretty neat. Is it surrounded by anything else?

I wonder if they'd think about hosting the Olympics?
