Rajamangala Stadium, Bangkok

(3.6/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
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.
A visit to Rajamangala Stadium represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bangkok trip generator to plot your vacation.

  • Stadionnya sangat terjal untuk dilalui, apalagi kl kita dapat tempat duduk paling atas. Untung ada Coldplay dan pengemarnya yg indah-indah saat saya berkunjung... jadi bagus deh stadionnya.  more »
  • Overall the stadium is nice but the only downside is the transport out of the stadium area. As there is so many people going out at the same time is a nightmare to find taxi. Best bet is to either tak...  more »
  • Went here with my wife for Coldplay concert. The concert itself spectacular but the stadium is not in good shape ie lack of toilet and exit. The process of getting into and out from stadium was chaos....  more »

  • Great place to catch Pokemon... has two stadiums and other sporting facilities. Since it's sponsored by the government, membership fees are quite low, but you need to know how to communicate in Thai
  • This stadium has been around a long time and certainly needs renovation. Still, it functions ok and plays host to some great activities, concerts and sport matches. So, don't rule it out.
  • Really old, nearly impossible to reach stadium in the outskirts of Bangkok. Definitely needs renovation! The cheapest way to get there it by taking the ferry line to the "Mahadthai" station. From there, it is a 5 min walk. Drinks are only sold in the bottom floor, so make sure to buy some when you enter the arena. On the bright side: tickets and drinks are cheap!!
  • Nice park around good to do runing and walking not so busy in the area,should have more bins and keep clean.
  • I live here and am a travel agent and do tours all over thailand. Once in bangkok you need to see this before going outside.
