Shanghai Indoor StadiumEdit profile
Shanghai Indoor Stadium (simplified Chinese: 上海体育馆; traditional Chinese: 上海體育館; pinyin: Shànghǎi Tǐyùguǎn) is a multi-purpose gymnasium, in Shanghai, China.
Hailed as a great feat of engineering at the time of its construction, the building is now considered dated and out-classed, by newly constructed sporting facilities nearby. It is now used mostly for entertainment events, rather than sporting competition.Name
It is close to Shanghai Stadium. The two facilities have very similar names in Chinese - the Indoor Stadium is literally called a "Sports Hall" (体育馆) while the Shanghai Stadium is called a "Sports Field" (体育场) - while in English their names differ only by the addition of "Indoor". This has been a source of confusion, especially after the opening of Shanghai Metro Line 4 with adjacent stations of these names.
When serving as a concert venue, it is often referred to as Shanghai Grand Stage (Shanghai Gymnasium).
It is the venue for the annual Roewe Shanghai Masters snooker championship, a major event on the snooker calendar.Notable Events
