My Dinh Stadium is an architectural icon and a home for sports clubs, teams and fans”, AFC wrote on its website.

My Dinh Stadium is the centerpiece of the National Sport Complex, about 10km west of the city center. The National Stadium inaugurated in 2003 is a multi-purpose venue with a capacity of up to 40,192 seats. It was built at the costs of roughly US$53 million.

The stadium has so far hosted numbers of important events, including the 22nd Southeast Asian Games in 2003, the Asian Cup in 2007, and the AFF Cup second-leg final in 2018, Bao Moi reported.

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.

Being a key venue for the 31st SEA Games late next year, followed by the 11th ASEAN Para Games (Para Games 11), the multi-purpose stadium will be upgraded at the end of October, according to the National Sports Administration. Both the SEA Games 31 and the Para Games 11 are expected to draw the participation of 11 countries from throughout the region.

Four remaining stadiums in the list are Stadium Australia (Sydney, Australia), Gelora Bung Karno Stadium (Jakarta, Indonesia), National Stadium (Bukit Jalil, Malaysia) and Rajamangala Stadium (Bangkok, Thailand).
