Most Expensive Football Stadiums in Southeast Asia
In Southeast Asia, the likes of Bukit Jalil Stadium in Kuala Lumpur and Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in Jakarta sit comfortably in that category, as does Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok. Scenes of historic triumph that hold a special place in the hearts and minds of football fans across the continent.
While the iconic stadiums are often those built many decades ago and steeped in history, more recent developments have seen purpose-built football stadiums pop up across the region. Grounds such as the i-Mobile Stadium in Thailand's Buriram, Felda United’s Tun Abdul Razak Stadium or Persiba’s Bakatan Stadium give fans a vastly different match day experience.
But how much do they cost?
