Jakarta International Velodrome is a sporting facility located at Rawamangun, East Jakarta, Indonesia. The arena was used as a venue for 2018 Asian Games and 2018 Asian Para Games.[1][2] The Velodrome covers an area of about 9.5 hectares.[3] The sports arena has a 250 m cycling track, designed by Schuermann Architects,[4] tennis court and swimming pools. The velodrome has a seating capacity of 3,500 for track cycling, and up to 8,500 for shows and concerts.[5] Although made for bicycle races, the complex will also be used for various sports activities such as volleyball, badminton, and futsal. The velodrome is certified as “Class 1” by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).[6]

The original venue was built in 1973 and demolished to make way for the modern velodrome. Previously, the velodrome latter was used as the venue for the 2011 Southeast Asian Games[7]. Demolished Rawamangun Velodrome was outdoor and classified as national standard, but after renovation the cycling venue into the indoor Velodrome has transformed to international standard and certification by the UCI.
