The Tan Sri Dato Hj Hassan Yunos Stadium, also simply known as Larkin Stadium, is a multi-purpose stadium in Larkin,[2] Johor Bahru, Malaysia. It is currently used mostly for football matches. The stadium holds 30,000 people and opened in 1964. It was named after former Menteri Besar of Johor, Tan Sri Dato Hj Hassan Yunos.[3]

Trivia[edit]

In Nov 16, 1997, a Japanese side containing a 20-year-old Hidetoshi Nakata secured a place at 1998 FIFA World Cup after winning a famous playoff against Iran in the Malaysian border town of Johor Bahru, a short drive from Singapore. A golden goal by Masayuki Okano, set up by Nakata, secured a come-from-behind 3-2 victory in front of a pro-Japan crowd at the iconic Larkin Stadium.[4]
