Rajamangala National Stadium is the national stadium of Thailand and the home stadium for the Thailand national football team. It is part of the Hua Mak Sports Complex, and is located in Hua Mak Subdistrict, Bang Kapi, Bangkok. It officially opened in 1998.OverviewIt was first used for the 1998 Asian Games in 1998 and 1999 ASEAN University Games in 1999. Since then, it has been used for many international matches and football tournaments. Most notably, for the 2007 AFC Asian Cup. Thai club sides have also used the stadium when playing in continental cup competitions. Krung Thai Bank FC (now Bangkok Glass FC) used it for AFC Champions League matches, and PEA FC and Chonburi FC have recently used it in the AFC Cup. Aside from football, it has been used for athletics, pop concerts and political rallies.Rajamangala Stadium was designed by the Faculty of Architecture at Chulalongkorn University. The main material used in construction was concrete and therefore, though the stadium is impressive and imposing, it could never be described as beautiful. However, it is undoubtedly dramatic. The stands rise and fall like a giant, exaggerated version of Huddersfield's Galpharm Stadium. At each end are quite narrow tiers of seats but the tiers rise and rise as they move round the sides until they peak level with the half-way line. From an aesthetic point of view, the stadium is best viewed from a distance, preferably from the air, where the elliptical shape of the side tribunes seems particularly pronounced.

  • The stadium is nothing special. The events in the stadium can be interesting and people watching can be more entertaining than the games. But it is what happens around the stadium that is the best. Th...  read more »
  • World Cup qualifiers, the Thailand Representative x went with Samurai blue cheer. I tend to travel by taxi and the distance from the center of the quaint sense b canal boat available, is recommended. 20 minutes without traffic jams from the heart of pratunam. 16 baht per person and is cheap. From the pier and shopping less than 10 minutes, until the stadium and also snacks. Taisa Porter's enthusiastic stadium is part of aging, but that was in a gentlemanly fight.

  • Acquaintance in Bangkok from cheapest scarcely category tickets. This is free for 200 baht (600 yen). Anything on sale one hour thing with all seats sold. Well, staying in hotels in thonglor. This stadium is the worst public transportation, with nearly 40 minutes walk of the nearest airport link station. Wise asked at the front, heavy traffic is expected, departed the hotel to 3:00 PM it. 7:30 PM kick-off, so how much thinking with anything, according to honest, I call a taxi. Sure enough, the heavy traffic. Near the place normally within 20 minutes, an hour and a half it took. But taxi fare is 170 baht. ¥ 500 is so-so. It is cheap. Around a vast Stadium, Thailand the cheering here raise the spirit. The entrance is an unusual high alert security system. First of all, you throw away bottles of the unfinished, was told to buy in. With it, I say DSLR shoulder lowered, bad. Seems to be deposited somewhere, where all I do not understand. Went once more timid Lady Valet entrance, camera bag, implore "absolutely not take from" hand gestures. Somehow I had put it. And enters in the Middle, again checking in baggage. Directed down when trying to open my bag, my staff had to go early, rather than in check so far. Whew whew it is. Yet until the game started nearly three hours. Hot Queso. Ask friends to come buy a beer, cup water and a tiny cream I bought. That alcohol is not sold. I'd smoke with a straw Chun-Yu, melting ice, heated to become better. When the sun set the game now is rain. Poncho of Japan bought 100 yen shop is a big help. The determination after half-time and go home with a friend. Out on the street, to stop the taxi, quite 捕marimasenn. About 15 minutes, finally caught. 8:30 PM had a smooth return. To be honest, far from football was not. The thought I should finally the Stadium through the train.

  • Acceptable. It is nice to see that they take security seriously. For spotting events, there are also many great activities outside the stadium. Note that the bathrooms are incredibly dirty, and that - should there be a major event - and you go by car, it may be a long wait to leave the stadium due to... traffic. Also, contrary to popular belief, the few front rows of the W stand are not covered by the roof - choose your seat(s) wisely!
  • Have many activities in here. Fitness, bike, soccer, swim etc. Have flee market in front at evening.
  • This place exercise and sport center have gym and other sports there very nice thing there in their evenings they have night market so many foods and think to buy and cheap price
  • The biggest sport stadium of Bangkok. The only main issue is the mass transportation system still not available..
  • Only 2 insufficient thing is transportation system and no roof zone
