Ten years before the establishment of Iranian Football Federation, Amjad-o-Nezam (Amjadolsaltaneh) agreed to sell his garden at a lower price provided that the stadium would be named Amjadieh, after his name.
In its life span, Amjadieh has hosted a number of most significant football events of Iran as well as political and social events. During the 80’s, after reception of huge spectators for Esteghlal-Persopolis matches and subsequent violent incidents, the matches between the two were transferred to Azadi stadium which was located at the outskirts of the city. Having been transferred to the Athletics Federation of Islamic republic of Iran, Amjadieh has never hosted any important football event since October, 2009.
What now remain from Amjadieh are blurry images of distant years and heartwarming memories of those who witnessed the golden years of Amjadieh.
