Rajamangala National Stadium is a national stadium of Thailand and home stadium of the Thai national football team located in Hua Mak Sports Complex in the area of Bang Kapi in Bangkok. The stadium was first used for the Asian Games, the ASEAN University games, international matches and football tournaments besides the AFC Asian Cup and the AFC Champion League matches.
Besides football, the stadium is also used for athletics, pop concerts and political rallies and has been designed by the Faculty of Architecture at Chulalongkorn University. The main material used in the construction has been concrete and the stadium presents an impressive and imposing structure that can also be mentioned as dramatic.
The stadium can be best viewed from a distance where the elliptical shape of the side tribunes become pronounced. The stadium is not served by public transport that is a cause of frustration among fans who come from far and wide to enjoy the games played here.
The pro-government red shirts movement gathered at the Rajamangala stadium while the anti-government group rallied at the Democracy monument of Bangkok. Other stadiums similar to Rajamangala include the Thai Army Sports Stadium, the Thai Japanese stadium and the Chulalongkorn University stadium.
