The Hang Jebat Stadium (Malay: Stadium Hang Jebat) is a multi-purpose stadium in Krubong/Paya Rumput, Malacca, Malaysia named after a Malacca Sultanate Laksamana, Hang Jebat. The stadium is the home for Melaka United and is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium has a capacity of 40,000 people. In 2010, the stadium hosted the Sukma Games and the Malaysia Para Games.[2]

History[edit]

The stadium was completed in September 2004.[3] Due to a war in Syria during qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Syria national football team played many of its home matches there.
