  • Only recently opened it's singapore's biggest stadium capable of holding 50,000 plus people! Come here to witness the grandiosity of this mega structure and enjoy the good food located all around the place
  • Here for jay chou concert. I sat in front so I wasn't affected by the lousy sound system nor the rain. The stadium is nice. If they want to make it a venue for concerts then they should improve on the sound quality.
  • Dar's first live NDP experience. Had a wonderful time being patriotic, Cheers!
