The Shanghai Stadium (simplified Chinese :上海体育场; traditional Chinese :上海體育場; pinyin :Shànghǎi Tǐyùchǎng) is a multi-purpose stadium in Shanghai. Between 2009 and 2019, the stadium hosted home matches of the Chinese Super League team Shanghai SIPG.



The stadium opened on 14 March 1999 when the 8th National Games of China were held in Shanghai. It was used for football preliminaries at the 2008 Summer Olympics. Shanghai Stadium was also the venue for the opening ceremony of the 2007 Special Olympics World Summer Games. The stadium hosted the 2015 Supercoppa Italiana match between Juventus and Lazio on 8 August 2015. [1]


Shanghai Stadium is close to Shanghai Indoor Stadium. Since the names of the two buildings differ by only a word in both Chinese and in English, many people have confused the two.[ citation needed ] This has been made worse by the opening of Shanghai Metro Line 4, in which the two are situated at adjacent stops.[ citation needed ]


The Regal Shanghai East Asia Hotel is located within the stadium.
