Aspire Zone (formerly known as Sports City Project) has grown significantly since its inception as an international sport destination in 2003 and continued to evolve to support the sports industry in Qatar and the world.
In 2008, Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) was established by Emiri decree to embrace three strategic members and a corporate office under the Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF).
The three strategic members are: Aspire Academy, Aspetar and Aspire Logistics, and each member has its individual role to perform in realizing the comprehensive operations. In addition to the three sister companies that AZF embraces, there are other significant business partners that AZF encompasses including The Torch Doha Hotel and Grand Heritage Doha Hotel and Spa.
AZF proved to be the favorite destination for decision makers in the sports industry and the pulse of sports and athletes, thanks to its intense activities calendar throughout the year. The range of services appeal to local, regional and international event organizers, only to make Aspire Zone a center of excellence that services the Sports World needs. Aspire Zone is a perfect setting to combine sport and leisure.
Rising to international prominence through the successful staging of 2006 Asian Games, AZF is the home to some of the world’s finest sport stadia and venues offering a stimulating combination of sport, sports medicine and research, and sport education. AZF continued to support the sports world with the successful hosting of the AFC Asian Cup 2011 games and the regionally-renowned Arab Games in 2011.
