Aspire Zone, also known as Doha Sports City, is a 250-hectare (2.5 km2) sporting complex located in Al Waab district of Doha, Qatar. Owned by the Aspire Zone Foundation, it was established as an international sports destination in 2003 and in the following year an educational center for the development of sporting champions (Aspire Academy) was opened.
