History and description

The Tanzania National Stadium, also known as Benjamin Mkapa Stadium, opened in 2007. First plans for the construction of a new national stadium had been made in the early 2000s, but seemed to stall due to a lack of funding and pressure from the World Bank and IMF to not embark on a costly project amid tough economic conditions. However, with the help of government and private investors, construction finally began and the stadium was completed on time. Despite objections from some Tanzanians, China stepped in and offered to partially finance the stadium as part of their stadium diplomacy program. Construction on the stadium next to Uhuru Stadium, Tanzania's previous national stadium began soon after.

It is currently the largest stadium in Africa and can accommodate over a hundred thousand spectators. Tanzania National Stadium hosted its first events in 2007.
