New Singapore National Stadium is a stadium under construction in Kallang, Singapore. It is due to open in 2014 for the Singapore Southeast Asian Games and will have a capacity of 55,000 spectators. It will be the new home of Singapore national football team. The site is situated at the old National Stadium, which was closed in 2007 and demolished in 2010.
The new national stadium will be a part of the Singapore Sports Hub, which consist of the Singapore Indoor Stadium, an Aquatic Centre, as well as a Multi-Purpose Indoor Arena. The stadium will also feature a retractable roof. Once completed, the stadium would have the World's largest dome roof.
Construction work for the sports hub started in 2010 due to the delays caused by the 2008 financial crisis and soaring construction costs. By September 2011, the pilling and the foundation of the stadium was completed and construction on the steelwork of the stadium fixed roof started. On July 2013, the installation of the stadium final primary steel ‘runway truss’ for the roof was completed marking the completion of the steelwork on the National Stadium’s fixed roof in preparation for installation of the retractable roof. The stadium is set to be completed in April 2014. In February 2014, Sports Hub CEO Philippe Collin Delavaud announced that the National Stadium's completion was pushed back to June 2014.
