Opened in June 2014, the National Stadium is the pride of the nation providing spectators a stunning view of the Singapore city skyline.

The 55,000 capacity National Stadium has a retractable seating capability making it the only stadium in the world able to host a multitude of events such as rugby, cricket, football, athletics, concerts, family entertainment shows, national and community events.

The stadium’s retractable roof and localised comfort cooling technology sets the next stage in environmentally sustainable stadium design, providing athletes and spectators with a uniquely comfortable environment.

The National Stadium saw its first three events – World Club Rugby 10s (21 to 22 June), Singapore Chinese Orchestra presents Our Music, Our People 2014 (28 June) and Stefanie Sun, Kepler World Tour 2014 (5 July).
