National Stadium, Bukit Jalil

Bukit Jalil National Stadium (Malay: Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil) in Bukit Jalil, located in the National Sports Complex to the south of the capital city of Malaysia Kuala Lumpur, is a 87,411 capacity all-seater, multi-purpose stadium that was built in 1998 to host the 1998 Commonwealth Games. It also served as the main stadium of the 2001 Southeast Asian Games. The Bukit Jalil's capacity makes it the 25th largest stadium in the world and the 9th largest football stadium in the world. It is also the second largest stadium in Southeast Asia behind Gelora Bung Karno Stadium. It was built by United Engineers Malaysia, Bhd, and completed three months ahead of schedule. Designed to host a multitude of events, the National Stadium is the central and most prominent sports venue at the 1.2 km² National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil.

The stadium is considered the best stadium in Malaysia and is home of the Malaysian national football team. Initially built for the 1998 Commonwealth Games, when it hosted the opening/closing ceremonies and the athletics competitions, the stadium is now used for a variety of events, most recently being one of the venues for the AFC Asian Cup 2007. There were many other sports venues that were built for the Commonwealth Games, such as Bukit Kiara Sports Complex and the National Sports Complex, Malaysia.

Malaysia's previous national stadium was the Merdeka Stadium before the Bukit Jalil sports complex was constructed. Malaysia also uses other stadiums for their football matches such as KLFA Stadium, MBPJ Stadium and the Shah Alam Stadium.
