History and description

Rajamangala Stadium was built to serve as the flagship venue for the 1998 Asian Games. It subsequently hosted the 1999 ASEAN University Games and the 2007 Summer Universiade.

The stadium could initially hold 65,000 spectators, which was reduced to just under 50,000 in 2007.

Rajamangala Stadium was one of the playing venues of the 2007 Asian Cup that was played across South-East Asia, hosting a number of first round group matches and one quarter-final.

How to get to Rajamangala Stadium

Rajamangala Stadium is located in the east of Bangkok at roughly 15 kilometres from Bangkok’s old town (Grand Palace), and 8 kilometres from the Sukhumvit area.

The stadium lies a bit off Bangkok’s MRT transit system, but can about just be reached with the Airport Rail Link trains that connects central Bangkok with Suvarnabhumi Airport. The nearest station is Ramkhamhaeng, which lies an approximate 30-minute walk away from the stadium. Of course, you can also take a taxi, motorbike taxi, or tuk-tuk to get there quicker.
