Qatar Aspire Zone set to double in size

 Plans are underway to nearly double the size of Qatar’s Aspire Zone by adding new venues, recreational areas and additional aquatic facilities.

 The vision for the Doha sports venue also includes restaurants, residential areas and a shopping centre, dubbed Aspire Park Mall.

 Phillip Templar, the director of venues and events at Aspire Zone’s logistics division, said: “There’s a growing demand within Qatar for more facilities for the sports and events industry… We see at least 1,000 events a year. With the addition of the new facilities, we expect the number to touch new highs.”
