Hong Kong Stadium, Hong Kong

(4.2/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
Hong Kong Stadium is the main sports venue of Hong Kong. Redeveloped from the old Government Stadium, it reopened as Hong Kong Stadium in March 1994. It has a maximum seating capacity of 40,000, including 18,257 at the main level, 3,153 at executive level, 18,507 upper level seats and 57 seats for wheelchair users.The stadium is located in So Kon Po, Hong Kong Island, a valley near Causeway Bay. Most international football matches held in Hong Kong are held at this stadium. It is also the location for the Hong Kong Sevens rugby sevens tournament. Hong Kong Stadium also hosted the Rugby World Cup Sevens twice, in 1997 and 2005.HistorySo Kon Po was formerly the burial ground for the 1918 fire at Happy Valley Racecourse. Then the Hong Kong Government moved all the tombs to Aberdeen. The old Government Stadium was a U-shaped constructed by 1953 and had a capacity of 28,000 with partially covered seating. It witnessed the best times of Hong Kong football in the 60s and 70s. At the time, the stadium would be packed full of spectators when a top of the league clash happened and a red flag would be hoisted. Eager spectators without tickets would climb the hill behind the stadium to see the game.

  • A wonderful experience. Fantastic world class rugby, brilliant fancy dress crowd and an amazing atmosphere. If you can DO IT.  more »
  • I have been coming the the 7's for many years. The stadium is a great facility that still is friendly and has a lot of character. The 7's is a great event and the stadium is a big part of it's success...  more »
  • The place to be for the annual rugby Sevens tournament. Has no equal. Rest of the year don't bother.  more »

  • Amazing stadium. Nestled in against the hills and shortish walk from MTR. Saw the Rugby 7s here. Awesome atmosphere. No queues for food or drinks makes this five star setup.
  • Good place for big events.
  • Probably the best stadium in Hong Kong. Watched the EPL preseason games here but the pitch did not look very good but that may have been due to the rain. Rugby 7s are also played here if not mistaken. Should bring some mosquito repellent with you.
  • Great space, but its a shame that it's so under used. The Rugby 7s need a bigger venue than this, but so many more tournaments could take place here.
  • A public place to see football games. The status of the grass is not impressive.
