With a reported seating capacity of 50,000, the Philippine Arena is to
be built on 74,000 square meters of land in Bocaue, Bulacan in Ciudad de .
When finished, it will be three times bigger than the Seoul Olympics Gymnastics Stadium.
It is also almost two times (2x) the seating capacity of the Araneta Coliseum (25,000 seating capacity only)
Its domed roof will be nearly 36,000 square meters thus laying claim to the title of
‘World’s Largest Dome Arena’.
According to the Korean Herald, Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corporation (Hanwha) won the bid to build the Philippine Arena. Contracts have already been signed (worth $175 million) and a groundbreaking was already done three days ago, August 17.
The project is expected to take 30 months to build and will be ready for the INC’s Centennial celebrations in 2014.
