Shanghai Indoor Stadium Station (simplified Chinese: 上海体育馆站; traditional Chinese: 上海體育館站; pinyin: Shànghǎi Tǐyùguǎn Zhàn) is the name of an interchange station between lines 1 and 4 of the Shanghai Metro.[1]

Name[edit]

The Chinese name of this station (上海体育馆, literally Shanghai Sports Hall) refers to the nearby Shanghai Indoor Stadium. However, the station used to bear the English name Shanghai Stadium, referring to the adjacent outdoor stadium called Shanghai Stadium instead of the indoor stadium. After the opening of the nearby Shanghai Stadium Station (上海体育场) specifically for the outdoor stadium, that station took the English name Shanghai Stadium, while this station was renamed Shanghai Indoor Stadium, now better reflecting the Chinese name.

Accidents[edit]

In 2007, a man tried to board a crowded train but was unable to. The automatic glass sliding doors closed in on him and he was dragged underneath the train, killing him.
