New Arena Planned for Singapore

Apr 2024

Singapore is set to construct a new state-of-the-art indoor arena adjacent to the existing Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, which is nearing its capacity after nearly 35 years of service. The aging facility, although a historic venue for numerous major sports and entertainment events, lacks the modern infrastructure required for today’s high-demand shows and events. This new arena is part of Singapore’s broader initiative to remain competitive in the regional market for hosting sophisticated and high-profile events, aligning with the global standards of venue offerings.

The new facility is a significant element of Singapore’s vision to transform the Kallang Alive precinct into a vibrant hub for world-class events, providing a home ground for national athletes and other purposes. This development is crucial as it ensures that the legacy of the Singapore Indoor Stadium continues while minimizing disruption to the ongoing events and programming. The continued operation of the existing stadium during the construction of the new arena ensures that Singapore can keep hosting major events without pause.

In addition to the new arena, the government of Singapore, through the Ministry for Culture, Community and Youth, has committed S$165 million over four years to a Major Sports Event Fund aimed at attracting more international sports events to the city. This initiative is part of a larger strategy to enhance Singapore’s position as a premier destination for global sports and entertainment, leveraging existing facilities within the Singapore Sports Hub and new developments like the Kallang Tennis Hub and other sports facilities throughout the city. This concerted effort underscores Singapore’s commitment to enhancing its infrastructure to meet future demands and maintain its competitive edge on the international stage.
