Located in a residential estate, Jalan Besar Stadium is a well-known landmark in Singapore. Jalan Besar Stadium is part of the Jalan Besar Sports and Recreation Centre – a community sports facility that includes the stadium and a swimming complex.


Otherwise known as the “birthplace of football” in Singapore, Jalan Besar Stadium was originally built in 1932. The stadium was the venue for major events such as the first Singapore Youth Festival in 1955, the first Singapore Armed Forces Day in 1969 and the 1984 National Day Parade.

It was then rebuilt and reopened in June 2003. Featuring a large 6,000 spectator capacity, the stadium was laid over again in 2008 with a better quality artificial turf, making the Jalan Besar Stadium field into the first-ever FIFA-approved Third Generation Football Turf in Singapore.

The stadium also hosts S.League games that are broadcasted on local television. S.League is the top professional football league in Singapore.
