About "Nyayo National Stadium"
The Nyayo stadium is frequently host to local professional football (soccer) games.
Built in 1983, the Nyayo National stadium is the second largest in Nairobi and is frequently host to local professional football (soccer) games. The stadium comprises a full-featured sports complex, including a 30,000 seat field (with surrounding running track); an aquatic centre with an Olympic-size pool, an indoor gymnasium, and a multi-use arena (can accommodate volleyball, wrestling, etc.). The stadium is home to the popular AFC Leopards football club, of the Kenyan Premier League, whose live games you can often catch on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. It also serves as the headquarters for the Kenya Football Federation, and has been used for many important sports events, including the 2010 African Championships in Athletics. In addition to football, the main field is frequently used on an ongoing basis for a variety of other important and large-scale public events (e.g. outdoor conferences, political events, etc.), and the on site swimming pool is open for public use, with trained lifeguards on duty. Ample on site parking is available.
