History of Hong Kong Coliseum

It was built by the Urban Council and inaugurated on 27 April 1983. The coliseum has 12,500 seats, which is the second largest among indoor facilities in Hong Kong, only behind the 2005-opened AsiaWorld–Arena.

The Coliseum provides a complete set of facilities for cultural performances, sports, ceremonies, meetings and assemblies. As the largest gymnasium in the city, most concerts are held here. Hundreds of pop stars, including Air Supply, Elton John, Ricky Martin, Jackie Chan and Andy Lau, have performed here. Even the “New York Philharmonic Orchestra”, “Miss Hong Kong”, “Hong Kong Film Award”, “Disney on Ice” and Placido Domingo turned the famous Hong Kong Stadium into a arena of laughter and tears.



The arena has a seating capacity of 12 500 with 10 400 arranging in contours and some 2 000 on tiered platforms. The arena can be adapted for end stage and central stage configurations, giving great flexibility to different types of events. It is equipped with demountable stage units and various types of seating platforms to suit different needs. The arena floor can be overlaid with demountable wooden flooring or other types of rubberized and court surfaces for various sporting events.

Central 4-side full colour projection system installed above the center of the arena can show close-ups, replays and track slow-motion shots of all on-going events, as well as displaying messages, scores and time keeping for sports tournaments.


The 22 000 sq m piazza, embracing the Coliseum, is an ideal facility for holding exhibitions, fun fairs, receptions and other outdoor activities to complement the event held inside the arena.
