Another symbol of the modernisation of Malabo: the sports complex that hosts the African Nations Cup.
Sports in Malabo.
Since 2007, Malabo's modern football (soccer) stadium has been seating more than 15,000 spectators, and it has already recorded several milestones throughout its short history. Located in the neighbourhood of Atepa, a few miles from the city centre, it was one of the headquarters of the 2012 African Nations Cup 2012 in the men's category. Moreover, the female Equatoguinean team was crowned champion of all Africa in this same venue four years earlier after winning the final against South Africa. The stadium is part of a charming complex which includes a sports hall, tennis courts, lap pool, training grounds with artificial grass, as well as handball and football courts. The hundred-room Malabo Hotel de Federaciones rounds out the complex. You may visit these facilities every day of the week.
