The Sport City had been developed for Buckatir Group, specialized in this sector. The surface development is about 25 million sqm of which 15 million sqm to realize. The project required 11 mosques, 21 schools, residence with different typologies (villa, tower, town houses) as well as a service sector and commercial Down Town. In addition there are therefore sport facilities, which includes 2 golf club, a soccer stadium, one cricket stadium, one for polo, one for basket and one swimming pool, plus healthcare centre and sport school.
