Sea Games 2011 Venues : Stadion Utama Gelora Bung Karno


SPORTS        : Football


Gelora Bung Karno is a multi-use stadium located at Senayan, South  Jakarta. Although the stadium is popularly known as Gelora Bung Karno Stadium (Stadion Gelora Bung Karno), its official name is Gelora Bung Karno Main Stadium (Stadion Utama Gelora Bung Karno), as there are other stadiums in the Gelora Bung Karno complex.

This is the oldest yet the most historical stadium in Indonesia. Located in Senayan, Jakarta the stadium named after the nation’s first President, Soekarno, was developed to host the fourth Asian Games in 1962.

The stadium development was directly supervised by Soekarno himself. Construction began on the stadium, formerly Gelora Senayan Main Stadium, on February 8, 1960 and finished on July 21, 1962 in time to host the Asiad. The stadium's original capacity of 100,800 people was reduced to 88,083 as a result of renovations for the 2007 Asian Cup.

It is divided into 24 sectors and 12 entrances, and into upper and lower stands. The special feature of this stadium is the huge steel roof construction that forms a gigantic ring called temu gelang (joined ring). Other than to shades the spectators in all sectors from the heat of tropical sun, the purpose of this giant ring construction is also to emphasize the grandeur of the stadium.
