The Singapore Indoor Stadium (Chinese: 新加坡室内体育馆; Malay: Stadium Territory Singapura; Tamil: சிங்கப்பூர் மூடப்பட்ட அரங்கம்) is an indoor sports arena, located in Kallang, Singapore.

The stadium is within walking distance of the Singapore National Stadium, and collectively they are part of the Singapore Sports Hub. Both the Stadium MRT station on the Circle Line and the Tanjung Rhu MRT Station on the Thomson-East Coast Line (Opening in 2023) enables visitors to commute to the stadium via train service.

Singapore Indoor Stadium has been ranked as the 150th busiest arena venue in the world for 2015, with 72,342 tickets being sold for the entire year.[2]

History[edit]

Construction began on 1 January 1985, and it was built at a cost of S$ 90 million. The arena was designed by Japanese architect Kenzo Tange, and it has a cone shaped roof and a pillarless arena. It was completed on 1 March 1987 and officially opened to public on 1 July 1988.[3]

On 31 December 1989, Singapore Indoor Stadium was officially opened in an inaugural ceremony by the Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew.[3]

Capacity[edit]

Due to its flexible stage configuration, the capacity of the stadium varies from 7,306–7,968 during concerts to 8,126–10,786 during sporting events. Its full capacity is around 12,000.[3]

Stadium Waterfront[edit]

Behind the indoor stadium, there is a waterfront section known as Stadium Waterfront, which has retail shops and restaurants. These offer alfresco dining, along with occasional street markets.[3]

Entertainments[edit]

The stadium has hosted major concerts and shows by many famous artists and bands, spanning many different genres.[4] International performers are highlighted using blue in the table below.
