The 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.

    Its a huge stadium and great place for concert. You can stay nearby hotel for the concert and just walk over rather than taking a cab back to hotel during heavy traffic hour. Travel wisely~ This is Ba...  more »

    Huge stadium. Great layout. I was sitting on the far most top. Very cool breeze up there. Easy entry and exit. The climb up it a little tiring though.  more »

    First time watching the Thai national side and what a support they have. Just 11 players trying their best and none of the cheating, diving and trying to con a referees that I am so used to seeing in U.K. and Europe. I would like to wish the team all the best for the future and once again your supporters create an atmosphere like nothing I have experienced in my life, which includes the biggest derby match in the world, Rangers v Celtic, cup finals and big European matches. With support like this I would hope results get better, if that is the noise you create when nothing is at stake I cannot wait to return again in the future. Good luck and best wishes for the next matches against Iraq and Australia, I will be home in the U.K. thinking of the great time I enjoyed despite them getting a very late equaliser after the 2 fine saves just before it. Being originally from Scotland I know what it is like having a bad qualifying campaign. I was a little upset to find no match programme available to add to my collection, this may change in the future, but I still have my happy memories.

    Place for multi sport event. Also for some music concert. Not the most modern stadium, but atmosphere on matchday is quite fantastic

    It's a big stadium! Btw, you guys need to keep the pond in front of this stadium clean because it's a good place to hangout in the midnight with friends and other!

    The stadium looks well-maintained. However, if you would attend an event here better be staying at hotel nearby because there's no train. You can only take bus or taxi and taxi usually won't use meter, they will set their own price
