From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rungrado 1st of May Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium in Pyongyang, North Korea, completed on May 1, 1989. It is regarded as the largest stadium in the world, with a capacity of 150,000, and occupying over 207,000 m².
Overview [ edit ]
It is currently used for
football matches, a few athletics events, but most often for Arirang performances (also known as the Mass Games). The stadium can seat 150,000, which is the [2 ] largest stadium by capacity in the world and the world's 12th largest sporting venue. [3 ]
Its name comes from
Rungrado Islet in the Taedong River, upon which it is situated, and May Day, the international labour day. Its scalloped roof features 16 arches arranged in a ring, and it is said to resemble a magnolia blossom. It is not to be confused with the nearby 50,000 capacity Kim Il-sung Stadium.
It hosts events on a main pitch sprawling across over 22,500 m² (242,200 ft²). Its total floor space is over 207,000 m² (2.2 million ft²) across eight stories, and the lobes of its roof peak at more than 60 m (197 ft) from the ground.
While the stadium is used for sporting events, it is most famous as the site of massive performances and shows celebrating
Kim Il-sung and the North Korean nation. In June–July 2002 it was the site of the colossal and meticulously choreographed " Arirang" gymnastic and artistic performance (often referred to elsewhere as " mass games"). The extravaganza involved for the first time some 100,000+ participants—double the number of spectators —and was open to foreigners. These performances are now an annual feature in Pyongyang, usually in August and September. The [4 ] has recognized these events as the largest in the world. Guinness Book of Records
In the late 1990s, a number of North Korean army generals implicated in an assassination attempt on Kim Jong-Il were
executed via burning in the stadium. [5 ]
It was also the venue in which
Kim Jong-Il in 2000 entertained Madeleine Albright, the U.S. Secretary of State under President Bill Clinton. [6 ] was the largest Collision in Korea professional wrestling pay-per-view event ever that was jointly produced by World Championship Wrestling and New Japan Pro Wrestling. It took place over a period of two days on April 28 and 29, 1995 at the stadium and had a record attendance of 150,000 and 190,000. It did not air in North America until August 4, 1995.
