My Dinh Stadium is the second-largest one in Vietnam regarding capacity, second only to Can Tho stadium (southern Vietnam) whose capacity is 50,000 seats.

Along with sporting events, the country’s second-largest stadium is an ideal venue to hold important events and music live shows as well. The great fireworks celebrating the 1,000-year anniversary of Thang Long (old name of Hanoi Capital) was also displayed in the stadium under the enjoyment of numerous spectators, according to Hanoi 1000.

“It’s a top-choice to hold such outdoor art events”, Vietnamese experts commented.
