The ground holds around 15,000 spectators and is the home of UAE Pro League outfit Al-Nasr SC.
The visit of Bob Paisley's Liverpool side opened the stadium back in 1978 when they played a friendly against Al-Nasr.
Just a few weeks after lifting the European Cup, the Reds won the game 5-0, with Colin Irwin and Ray Kennedy netting doubles and Alan Hansen also scoring.
