The Rajamangala National Stadium is the national stadium of Thailand and the home stadium for the Thailand national football team. It is part of the Hua Mak Sports Complex, and is located in Hua Mak Subdistrict, Bang Kapi, Bangkok. It officially opened in 1998.
It was first used for the 1998 Asian Games in 1998 and 1999 ASEAN University Games in 1999. Since then, it has been used for many international matches and football tournaments. Most notably, for the 2007 AFC Asian Cup. Thai club sides have also used the stadium when playing in continental cup competitions. Krung Thai Bank FC (now Bangkok Glass FC) used it for AFC Champions League matches, and PEA FC and Chonburi FC have recently used it in the AFC Cup. Aside from football, it has been used for athletics, pop concerts and political rallies.
Rajamangala Stadium was designed by the Faculty of Architecture at Chulalongkorn University. The main material used in construction was concrete and therefore, though the stadium is impressive and imposing, it could never be described as beautiful. However, it is undoubtedly dramatic. The stands rise and fall like a giant, exaggerated version of Huddersfield's Galpharm Stadium. At each end are quite narrow tiers of seats but the tiers rise and rise as they move round the sides until they peak level with the half-way line. From an aesthetic point of view, the stadium is best viewed from a distance, preferably from the air, where the elliptical shape of the side tribunes seems particularly pronounced.

  • It is huge and gigantic stadium. We visited the Rajamangala stadium a day before the concert day and just to find out the easiest way to get there. We stayed at Livotel Hua Mak which located 2kms from...  more »
  • Running a cool workout helps burn body fat. After that, the hunger is coming out in front of the stadium, and you will find a delicious restaurant in a variety of restaurants. Papaya salad is a long queue, fried rice with chicken and spicy sushi. In addition to the food, there are clothes. Many more.

  • This national stadium is full featured with lots of sports. You can see lot of people doing jogging and doing exercises every day. On top of all this stadium have a huge area and the best part is you can take your dog here. Lots of people come with dog here. There is a huge area for parking also which is another really good thing about this park.
  • National stadium for the Thai national football team. Old but still in a decent condition. Views are not blocked from any part of the stadium. Restrooms are located at each sector. Downside is the location of the stadium itself, the ramkhamhaeng area is super trafficky and is undergoing road construction currently (Dec 2018). Lack of refreshment and snack services during a sports event, meaning you have to stand in line with 200 people just to buy drinking water. Security system is organized but that's where event management stops literally (after the entrance don't expect any further services). In overall, a nice experience to watch the Thai national football team play.
