Quân khu 7 Stadium (7th Military Region Stadium, Vietnamese: Sân vận động Quân khu 7) is a stadium on Hoang Van Thu street, Tan Binh District, near Tan Son Nhat International Airport, Ho Chi Minh City. It has a capacity of around 25,000 people.

Tenants[edit]

This stadium was one of the venues of 2007 AFC Asian Cup finals, hosted by four South-East Asian countries, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. It was also the home field for Quân khu 7 F.C. before the club was transferred in 2009, as well as Thép Miền Nam Cảng Sài Gòn F.C. (now known as Hồ Chí Minh City F.C.) for 2007 V-League.

Entertainment[edit]

HEC K-Pop Festival held at the stadium in 2014

Through the years, the stadium remains the favorite choice for large-scale entertainment events in the city due to its design. The stadium's stand A is covered by a roof and seating 6,700 people - more than the capacity of the city's largest indoor venue (Phu Tho Indoor Stadium) and similar to the comparable section at the older Thong Nhat Stadium. At an optimal concert configuration, the stadium could hold up to 18,000 people.[1]

Korean artist Rain had two concerts in this stadium in 2006 and 2007. In 2008, American alternative rock band My Chemical Romance had a concert here as part of Tiger's United08 Concert. In 2010, The Click Five had a concert here as a part of MTV EXIT concerts in several Vietnam cities. In 2011, Backstreet Boys and David Archuleta held their own concerts here as part of their respective Asian tour. Ariana Grande is scheduled to perform her first concert in Vietnam at the stadium on August 23, 2017.[2]
