Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Kuala Nerus District, Terengganu, Malaysia, constructed by a South Korean construction firm. Together with the adjacent Mini Stadium, it forms the centrepiece of Terengganu Sports Complex. It was used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 50,000 people and is named after the reigning Terengganu Ruler, Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin. The biggest stadium in the East Coast region of Peninsular Malaysia, it was built to replace Sultan Ismail Nasiruddin Shah Stadium as the state's main stadium. Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin himself, who was then the 13th Yang DiPertuan Agong officiated the stadium on 10 May 2008. Its first major use was as the main venue for Sukma Games 2008.Collapse of the roofOn 2 June 2009, a major part of the roof construction collapsed under normal weather conditions, including the section above the royal box. It was only about a year after the stadium was officially opened. Witness accounts indicated that a long loud sound similar to a jet engine noise was heard as the roof fell to earth in pieces. A number of staff were in the stadium during the collapse, with preparations for varsity staff games being made. In addition to the games getting cancelled, many pieces of equipment were either damaged or destroyed and vehicles parked nearby being damaged. Fortunately, no casualties were reported.The major cause for the collapse of the roof was identified to be the design fault and inappropriate materials. There were also reports of sporadic loud bangs and structure damage prior to the collapse. One of the structural repair jobs on the roof was scheduled on the day of the collapse itself, along with some electrical repair works being carried out on other part of the stadium. As of June 2010, the cleaning work and relocation of the collapsed roof were not finished.

Where to stay in Kuala Terengganu

Whether you are looking for a luxurious five-star suite or a simple room, Kuala Terengganu offers accommodations for every budget. You get what you pay for, however, and the least expensive rooms often do not offer air conditioning or television. Another wallet-friendly option, the Chinese-style basic guesthouses remain clustered in the city's Chinatown area.
