Dubai-based Duplays will construct the first in a series of new privately owned football sports complexes in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
The 9,290m2 Duplays Dome project will contain approximately 5,574m2 of outdoor sports pitches. An additional 3,715m2 of climate-controlled space, containing indoor courts, will also be developed.
Duplays has formed a joint venture company with its local partner and Saudi-based developer, Al Hokair Group, to build the first of three pilot projects in major Saudi cities, according to Arab News.
Duplays' co-founder, Ravi Bhusari, said that the first centre in northern Jeddah will completed by before the end of the year.
“The type of construction we are using is a modular construction and they are quick build facilities,” Bhusari added.
The facility has been modelled on the ‘soccer centers’ concept developed in the UK by companies such as Goals and PowerLeague.
