Shah Alam Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located in Shah Alam, Malaysia. It is used mostly for football matches but also has facilities for athletics. The stadium is the home of Selangor FA, and has a capacity of 81,000. Construction began in 1991, and the stadium was officially opened in 1994, when a Dundee United selection played a Selangor FA selection.
The stadium is situated in the eastern part of Shah Alam. The Shah Alam Stadium, which consists of huge six level semi-enclosed spaces, is the largest stadium in Selangor State. It was the biggest stadium in Malaysia before the completion of the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil. The frame structure is the longest free-standing arc in the world. Constructed with the latest technology, it is now a popular venue for world class sport events. The stadium was designed by a well known Malaysian Architect, Hijjaz Kasturi.
The stadium has around 5,500 car bays in parking lots surrounding the stadium. The stadium has become the major landmark in Shah Alam due to its scale and magnificent architecture. Other than sporting facilities, the stadium also has a go-kart racing circuit. Once, Universiti Teknologi Mara's (UiTM) Faculty of Performing Arts occupied a portion of the stadium as its faculty building prior to the completion of the Puncak Perdana Satellite Campus of the University.
Shah Alam Stadium is currently the home stadium for Selangor who play in Malaysia's top division - the Super League (the Premier League is new-speak for the Second Division / Championship).
