In 2003, 35,000 seats were installed in the lower tier of Azadi Stadium. The upper tier remains without seating.

the addition of the seats must have lowered total capacity to less than 100 000 right ?

Capacity was originally 110,000. Seating should be also be installed in the upper tier as well, which will reduce capacity further if such a project is done.

TEHRAN- Azadi Stadium (100,000 +)

Iran's largest stadium and the focal point to Persian Football is the azadi stadium, home of the national team and the two largest clubs of Asia, Persepolis FC and Esteghlal (taj) FC

it is one of the largest stadiums in the world, and one of the most feared, as sound can create a real hell for visiting teams

The Azadi Stadium (Persian: ورزشگاه آزادی) formerly Aryamehr Stadium (Persian: ورزشگاه آریامهر) is Iran's national stadium and the largest in the country. The Azadi stadium officially has a capacity of 100,000 people [3][4] and was built to host the 1974 Asian Games. The stadium is part of the much larger Azadi Sports Complex, and is surrounded by a rowing river, football training pitches, a weightlifting complex, swimming facilities and indoor volleyball and futsal courts, among many other amenities. Azadi Stadium is the fifth biggest association football stadium in the world, fourth in Asia and first in the Middle East.[5][6]
Azadi Stadium hosts most of Iran's national games, and is the home arena for Persepolis F.C. and Esteghlal F.C. in the Iran Pro League.
In 2002, the lower level of the stadium had seats installed, the pitch was replanted along with the installation of an underground heating system. Stadium management also plans to later install seats in the upper level of the stadium. The renovations were completed in 2003, reducing the capacity of the stadium to 100,000 (Originally 120,000 capacity) as the lower level of the stadium was refurnished with 35,000 seats. Despite its reduced capacity, Azadi Stadium has been filled over capacity at times such as the Iran-Japan World Cup 2006 qualification match in March 2005 which resulted in the deaths of seven people. In 2004 a large jumbotron television was added, replacing the original scoreboard. This giant screen with a total area of about 300 square meters and screen area of 104 square meters (20m by 7.5m) is one of the biggest in the world.
The stadium was originally called Sad-Hezar Nafari Stadium (100,000) Stadium but then changed to Azadi Stadium after the Iranian Revolution; "Azadi" means freedom in Persian. The stadium is located in the West of Tehran, and is easily accessible for most people living in the city. Opposing teams often find it difficult to play their best game, when the stadium is full, as the noise level becomes very high. According to Goal.com, Azadi Stadium was voted most intimidating in Asia.
The stadium hosted two West Asian Football Federation Championship in 2004 and 2008. The stadium also hosted thos Asian Club Championship in 1999 and 2002 where the hosts Esteghlal and Persepolis finished second and third. In 2008 AFC forced Sepahan to play the home matches in AFC Champions League in this stadium. The stadium also is the regular host for Iran u-23 for the Olympics football qualifying.
Azadi Stadium is the biggest Stadium in Middle East
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azadi_Stadium


the stadium is made of 2 tiers, the first seating about 35,000 (all seater) and the second tier the remaining 65 000 (not seated, concrete benches)

in the 2006 qualifying matches, iran faced rivals japan in march 2005, and over 130000 fans flooded the stadium and almost 100000 were behind the stadium gates, the largest ever attendance for such football match in world history. many were injured and many sadly died, and ever since the official capacity has been reduced to 90000 and extremely heavy security is allways on guard, even for less important matches, but the stadium has filled even after the new restrictions

Nice, steep stands, great setting. This could be the best football stadium with permanent athletitcs track. Now they only have to bring their ruling regime to the same standards.

Are there pictures outside and inside of the indoor arena, the aquatics arena, the five gymnasiums and the open-air velodrome?

Large indeed but the athletics track and the completely uncovered stands kill the atmosphere.

kindof, for azadi, true and not true

as a national stadium, like the berliner stadion, the track is a sign that this is iran's focal point in all sports, its the centre, the national sports place, on my opinion , it adds to the grandeur of the stadium ( although this is an exception, i prefer no tracks in general)

the roofing is also a debate, the stadium is so large, the atmosphere is good, even wothout a roof. certainly a roof would make acoustics far better, maybe making it the loudest stadium ever, but on one hand it will ruin the view of the mountains aswell, which is a very special element of the stadium

you mentioned very good points!

I understand. Your point of view makes sense. I was too much being focused on football and forgot about the importance of other sports.

When I look at the pictures, I have the impression that the moutain view is limited to only one side of the stadium. So a roof covering 75% of the stands would be possible without destroying the view to the mountains.
