Jining Stadium is one of the major projects in the process of Jining’s urban planning; Jining will finish its history without large sports facilities upon the completion of the stadium. The stadium is able to hold more than 30,000 people, it interprets the profound canal culture in Jining. The perfectly integrated curtain wall and metal roof make the stadium a new landmark of Jining. The design supports the stadium’s function and the floor plan is efficient and compact. The Jining stadium will become an ideal space to hold large-scale entertainment and sports events. At the end of May 2009, Jining Stadium hosted an inaugural ground-breaking ceremony in the Beihu Resort District.
