Kai Tak Stadium is a multi-purpose sports stadium to be built at the site of Kai Tak Airport, Kowloon, Hong Kong. The exact location according to renders is on the north western part of the property, where some of the parking stands used to be. [1]

AECOM was engaged by the Civil Engineering and Development Department of HKSAR to undertake the Kai Tak Development project in early 2007.[2] In the 2011-12 policy address delivered by Hong Kong Chief Executive Donald Tsang, he stated that the government is studying financing options and mode of operation of the proposed multi-purpose stadium complex at Kai Tak and will start the preliminary work as soon as possible.[3]

Chinese newspapers in Hong Kong reports that the stadium will be completed in 2018 or 2019, costing HK$19 billion (US$2.44 billion)[4] and will have a 40-50,000 capacity.[5]

On 5 November 2012, the Home Affairs Bureau completed an initial technical feasibility study of the Kai Tak multipurpose complex and submitted it to the Legislative Council. In the study, the bureau proposed a "design-build-operate" approach - design, construction, operations and maintenance under a single entity - to ensure effective delivery from designing the complex to its long-term operation. The study also recommended that the project be financially supported by a combination of government and private financing in order to maximize efficiency and innovation. The stadium will have a retractable roof and a capacity of 50,000 for international sports and entertainment events. The facilities are expected to be completed by 2020.[6]

HK$62.7 million in pre-construction funds for the Kai Tak Multi-purpose Sports Complex was approved by the Legislative Council Finance Committee members on 3 July 2015.[7]
