Aspire Dome is credited as the world’s largest indoor multi-purpose dome, with a total seating capacity of 15,500 across 13 separate multi-sport halls. In 2007, Aspire Dome won silver at the IOC/IAKS Distinction Awards.
It adjoins Aspire Academy, and opens its doors to the public regularly during events. Some of the most important events Aspire Dome hosted are:
- ASPIRE4SPORT Exhibition and Conference in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013
- Doha GOALS Forum (2012 and 2013)
There are three gates that can be opened to the public, distributed around the Dome; the fourth is dedicated to VIPs.
The handicap needs have been considered as they get inside from the Main Entrance. From there, they can reach to all the fields and spectators areas.
During major events, the Khalifa Stadium parking area can be used to accommodate the public, and shuttle buses transfer them to the Dome. As well, signage is put up to guide the audiences through the venue.
