The National Dasarath stadium is in the city of Katmandu in Nepal. Nepal is in Central Asia, bordered on the North by China (Tibet region) and on the West, South, and East by India. In the North is the main section of the Himalayas, including Mount Everest. The stadium was inaugurated in 1958 and has a capacity of 30,000. The stadium is now used for all of Division A’s football leagues fixtures, for the whole season home and away. That’s 28 matches each all at the Desarath Stadium. The reason for this is that no Nepalese league clubs own their own ground. The country’s worst ever civilian disaster occured in the Desarath Stadium, on March 12th, 1988. The reason for this was a stampede to the exits during an hailstorm, the result of this action was 70 fans lost their lifes.
