Wuhan Sports Center Stadium – stadium description
This stadium in southern Wuhan was built between 1999 and 2002 as part of one of China’s new sports centers. Announced initially to hold 60,000 people, it proved to be significantly smaller, but still sufficient for domestic football needs. Almost constantly with a league club as anchor tenant, this ground also hosted games of the 2007 Women’s World Cup.
The roof is its most distinctive part. Supported by four concrete pillars, its curved steel frames support a light membrane cover. This structure was co-created by Birdair, global leader in tensile covers.
Apart from the main stadium the complex comprises two large indoor arenas, secondary athletic stadium and two football fields. Altogether the facilities are supplied with over 3,000 parking spaces.
China: Wuhan set for new professional football stadium
It is a real stadium boom in China. Interesting and finally good news comes from Wuhan where the new professional football stadium will be raised. The 60,000 seater should be completed and operational in June 2023.
