Club: Olympic Kef
It was completed in 2001 just in time for the country to stage the Mediterranean Games the same year.
Ironically, Tunisia's first senior international at the venue was against the former world champions France on 21 August 2002.
Situated 20km (12 miles) from Tunis centre, it has been included in Tunisia's 2010 World Cup bid package.
