Description: Chulalongkorn Stadium

Central stadium of the Chulalongkorn University is known for being the first one in Thailand to have artificial turf installed. But before that happened in 2005, it had already served for over half a century for football and numerous other events.

Possibly the most famous sports battle to take place here is the 1953 boxing match between Jimmy Carruthers and Chamroen Songkitrat. There were reportedly 70,000 people watching both boxers and that seems particularly impressive compared to current normalized capacity of 20,000.

Current use is mostly provided by professional football teams, which regularly use it for games. Anchor tenant role is played by Chamchuri United.
