Ten years before the Iranian Football Federation’s establishment, 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 several most significant football events of Iran and political and social events. During the 80s, after the reception of huge spectators for Esteghlal-Persopolis matches and subsequent violent incidents, the matches between the two were transferred to the Azadi Stadium, located on the outskirts of the city. Having been transferred to the Athletics Federation of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Amjadieh has never hosted any important football event since October 2009.
What now remains from Amjadieh are blurry images of distant years and heartwarming memories of those who witnessed the golden years of Amjadieh.
