Hanoi-based My Dinh Stadium repaired to host SEA Games 31
The Hanoitimes - The upgrade and repair process of the national stadium is expected to be completed next March and April, and will not affect the 2022 World Cup qualifiers of the Vietnamese team.
Vietnam will repair the My Dinh National Stadium, the heart of the 31st Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games 31), in Hanoi. Many items will be upgraded, including all the seats and function rooms.
My Dinh National Stadium was opened in 2003 to host the Southeast Asian Games (SEA) at a cost of almost $ 53 million. Its four stands A, B, C, D have capacity for more than 40,000 people. After 17 years of operation, many elements of the My Dinh Stadium have deteriorated.
Many areas at stands C and D are sinking and deteriorating.
