Aspire Zone Foundation:
Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) was established by Emiri decree (1) that was announced on the 1st January 2008 in order to develop a world-class sporting environment, enhance sports performance and contribute to producing elite local athletes with a comprehensive academic, athletic and mental education fit to compete in various local and global competitions. AZF also seeks to promote an active and healthy lifestyle among local community members and encourage the growth and development of the sports economy in Qatar to support the Human Development Pillar as outlined in the Qatar National Vision 2030.
AZF works closely with its three member organisations, Aspire Academy, Aspetar and Aspire Logistics, as one integrated institution in a unique ‘Aspire way’ working model. Each of the member organisations has its own specific role in support of AZF's overall objectives to help it realise its vision of being the reference in sports excellence worldwide by 2020.
AZF is unique because it hosts some of the world's best indoor and outdoor facilities and pitches all in one place. These include the Khalifa International Stadium, a 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ host venue, the Aspire Dome, the largest multi-purpose dome of its kind in the world, Hamad Aquatic Centre and two hotels: the Torch Doha Hotel and Al Aziziyah Boutique Hotel. Together, these make Aspire Zone a leading sports hub in Qatar and the preferred training destination for elite local, regional and international athletes.
