The Bukit Jalil National Stadium is a multi-purpose venue, home to both the Malaysian national football team and local football teams from the area. The venue hosts events throughout the year with the International Youth Football Festival taking place in late January, where some of the most famous international stars are in attendance. Other major events that take place at the venue include the annual International Auto Show and the Great Malaysia Fair. Events taking place at the stadium include regularly scheduled tournaments and competitions, as well as locally-hosted games.
The venue hosts a number of sporting events, including both local and international matches. The stadium features two pitches, each featuring fifteen kilometres of stretch out front. Originally the venue was built for three soccer pitches but as demand for the venue grew it was decided to expand to four pitches. The new facility is thought to be the largest multi Pitch sports complex in Malaysia. Furthermore, it is one of only two pitches of this size in all of Southeast Asia, the other being the Central Valley Sports Stadium.
The venue hosts a number of different teams, both local and international. Although the majority of matches are played on the central pitch, there are some teams who play on the outer two pitches as well. In addition, there is a practice pitch underneath the main pitch, which is used by both senior teams and aspiring players. Additionally, there is an artificial pitch at the centre which is being used by the national football team as well as the junior national team. This stadium is also used by teams from the United Kingdom, South Africa, Canada and Brazil.
The Bukit Jelak Sport Centre was previously known as the Kuala Lumpur International Football Stadium. It was designed to be one of the finest venues in all of Malaysia when it was completed and opened in 1997. However, it only served as a venue for a select number of prestigious football teams in the country. As a result, it was not until recently that it was decided to transform this stadium into a fully functional venue for a football match.
Today, the Bukit Jelak Sport Centre is a fully operational facility which hosts a variety of different events. From concerts, school games and even public sports clinics and tournaments, this indoor venue offers something for everyone. In addition to holding a variety of events, it also features a highly advanced artificial grass surface. This is able to make the entire playing field water-free and secure for the players and fans alike.
The turf has also been designed to ensure that the playing field remains completely safe and stable. As a result, it is not only enjoyable for players but it is also easy for spectators to watch matches from a distance. A large screen is located amongst the stands at the Bukit Jelak Stadium which means that you can enjoy not only the game itself but also the action from all corners of the pitch. Additionally, a separate video board is located within the stands which also allows supporters to follow the players, coaches and other teams from a far distance. Because of these features, the pitch has always been one of the most popular playing fields in the whole of Malaysia. Moreover, it also serves as the base for a number of local football clubs which helps them develop their football skills in the comfort of their own homes.
The Bukit Jelak Stadium is also home to a water-filled swimming pool which can be used by both teams as well as visitors during the summer months. The playing field is also protected by a high security fence, which helps to keep away unwanted visitors from the premises and also any potential trespassers. As such, the stadium has continually experienced heavy patronage from both local residents and visitors who enjoy visiting the venue during the summer months and during the wet season.
The ground itself was built in 1998 and is considered to be one of the finest artificial pitches in Asia. It was specifically designed by architects who managed to design a completely complete stadium with club seating areas, VIP boxes, advertising spaces as well as club shops located on the ground floor. The Bukit Jalil National Stadium can also accommodate up to 60 consecutive matches without any interruption from play. The ground is also considered one of the best in the region for both domestic as well as international level football.
