A project managed by private investors
As part of the second implementation phase of the Emerging Senegal Plan, the new urban centre of Diamniadio is a symbol of the country’s economic ambitions and momentum. Located some 30 kilometers from the capital, Dakar, Diamniadio is positioned as a fast-growing administrative and industrial hub for a variety of activities.
Dakar Diamniadio Sports City (DDSC) will meet international standards and offer a wide range of facilities. It will also contribute to the well-being of the local community and enhance the new city’s attractiveness to a wider public, in particular businesses and professional and amateur athletes.
The DDSC will have tennis courts, an athletics track, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a children’s playground, a first-class fitness suite, a medical sports centre, multisport halls, 7-a-side half-pitches (Maracana), combat sports gyms, a wellness area (spa, hammam), a FIFA-standard football pitch and a professional training centre.
