After inspecting various parts of the construction project, including its gradients, the metal structure of the second level, preparation of the turf and construction of the VIP grandstands, the officials attended a session where Abbaspour, the vice president of the Sport Stadiums Development and Maintenance Company, and Alipour presented comprehensive progress reports on the project and a timeline for its completion.

During the inspection tour, the deputy governor of the province said that the governor's office wants to have the project inaugurated according to schedule, and added that the project to complete the construction of the stadium that seats 75,000 spectators should be accelerated.

Meanwhile, Mostafa Modabber, the managing director of the Sport Stadiums Development and Maintenance Company said the logos of Mobarakeh Steel Company Club will be used in the construction of the stadium.

He also thanked the "esteemed managing director of Mobarakeh Steel Company, his excellency Dr. Zargar, the provincial governor, and Soltan Hosseini, the director general of the provincial Sports and Youth Department and all others" who want this stadium to be completed according to schedule.

Later, the managing director of Mobarakeh Steel Company underlined his company's support for the project and its timely completion as he talked about cost management, optimization of operations and climatic conditions that require closer coordination among contractors to complete the project on time.
 
He also said that Mobarakeh FC should be based in this stadium and underlined optimization of equipment, minimized costs for hosting games and application of all standards required by the Asian Football Confederation.

Then, Saeedbakhsh, MSC vice-president for projects who represents the steelmaker in the stadium project, presented a report on the progress of the project and the financial support MSC has lent to it so far. He also called for measures to speed up the completion of the project.

The stadium that seats 75,000 spectators is located to the north of Isfahan. It is the country's second largest stadium after Tehran's Azadi and the largest semi-covered arena in the country.

The first phase of the stadium was inaugurated in 2002. Until 2006, Sepahan FC staged its home games at this stadium which was closed in 2006 for completion of its second phase. Because of financial problems the project was shelved.

In 2014, the Ministry of Sports and Youth signed a deal with Mobarakeh Steel Company as investor to complete the stadium. The project started in early 2015. Under the deal the destruction of certain parts of the stadium and reconstruction of others are already complete.

The project got off to a slow start thanks to a shortage of metal sheets needed to build its structures and reform the roof. The contribution of MSC helped settle that problem.
