Hongkou Football Stadium (simplified Chinese: 虹口足球场; traditional Chinese: 虹口足球場; pinyin: Hóngkǒu Zúqiúchǎng) is a professional football stadium in Shanghai, China. Located in Hongkou District, the stadium has a maximum capacity of 33,060.[1] The stadium was re-built in 1999, over the previous 46-year old Hongkou Stadium, a general use sports stadium now replaced by the Shanghai Stadium.

History[edit]

The stadium has 3 squash courts inside and a climbing wall, which was rebuilt in early 2009. The stadium is currently used mostly for football matches and it is the home stadium of local football team Shanghai Shenhua. It also hosted the final of the 2007 FIFA Women's World Cup.
