Stade 28 Septembre, Conakry

Stade 28 Septembre is a multi-purpose stadium in Conakry. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium has a capacity of 35,000 people. In an attempt to host the 2016 African Cup of Nations (ANC), or Coupe d'Afrique des Nations (CAN) in French, proposals have been made to upgrade or reconstruct the September 28 Stadium to an all seater capacity of 75,000-80,000 people. Currently, a new all seater national stadium, with a capacity of 50,000-55,000, is being constructed in Nongo near Conakry, the capital of the Republic of Guinea.

The Stadium gets its name from September 28. The day Guinea voted famously NO in the French referendum, which ultimately led to the political independence of Guinea on October 2, 1958. Guinea-Conakry (formerly French Guinea) is the first former French colony in Sub-Saharan Africa to attain political independence.
