Choa Chu Kang Stadium

The Choa Chu Kang Stadium, with its international standard football pitch and 4,000–spectator capacity, has been proposed along with Jurong West Stadium as the proposed venue for the preliminary rounds of the Football competition of the Singapore Youth Olympic Games 2010.

The stadium was built in 2001 and is part of the Choa Chu Kang Sports Complex, a large and popular community sports facility which includes alongside the stadium, a swimming complex, gymnasium, four tennis courts, a street soccer area, and a multi-purpose sports hall. Choa Chu Kang Stadium is home to the Singapore Armed Forces Football Club (SAFFC), which participates in Singapore’s professional football league.

Choa Chu Kang Stadium has been used as the venue for the home leg of Asian Club Football Championships in 2002. The venue was also used when Singapore played the ‘A’ international friendly football match against the Philippines in early 2007.

When SAFFC participated in the Asian Football Confederation Cup 2007, the Choa Chu Kang Stadium hosted various football league teams from around the world, including India’s Mahendra United, Hong Kong’s Happy Valley, Jordan’s Al-Wihdat and New Radiant from the Maldives.

The Stadium was also the venue for the Asian Grand Prix Athletics Championships in 2005. It is also frequently used to host various Singapore Athletics events such as the annual Singapore National Schools’ Athletics Championships and the Singapore Open Athletics Championships.

Choa Chu Kang Stadium is a 20 minute shuttle bus ride from the Youth Olympic Village.
