Oman's sports minister has unveiled a raft of new tenders governing new sports stadium projects across the country.

The government is planning two new sports complexes in the governates of North A'Sharqiyah and South Al Batinah as well as a new stadium in Musanadam and the expansion of the existing Al Sa'ada Sports complex in Dhofar.

The minister, Sheikh Sa'ad bin Mohammed al-Mardhouf al-Sa'adi, said the tenders were part of a strategy to build new complexes and centres across the Sultanate, according to the Oman News Agency.

The new Musanadam stadium will be in Khasab and will include a 12,000-capacity international-standard football stadium and associated facilities such as fitness halls and media facilities.

The Al Batinah project will include a 17,000-seat international-standard football stadioum, a training ground, hockey pitch, two tennis courts, a covered olympic pool and multi-purpose gym as welll as medical centres and fitness facilities at A'Rustaq. The gym will have a capacity for around 1,100 spectators and can be used for events such as handball, volleyball and basketball.

The North A'Sharqiyah project will contain a new 12,000-capacity football stadium, fitness halls, conference rooms and media facilities, with potential for a new multi-purpose sports hall to be added later.

Finally, the existing stadium at Al Sa'ada is to see its seating capacity doubled to 18,000, with a view to a future increase of around 25,000. Utilities at the stadium will also be upgraded. The minister said that a tender for the project will be floated soon.
