MANILA - SM Arena (16,000)

SM Arena
Adjacent to the south parking building, a two-hectare area has been allocated for the site of a 16,000-capacity multi-purpose SM Arena. It will be designed also by Arquitectonica, which did the American Airlines Arena.

The SM Arena is expected to be the venue of choice for sporting events, concerts and entertainment shows. It is set to rival the 50-year old Araneta Coliseum in Cubao, Quezon City.

Arquitectonica? Does that mean Laurinda Spear is doing it? I really like her work.

Could this be the start of an Olympic size stadium near the area?

An Olympic size stadium, a new aquatics center and other core Olympic venues (Manila really needs a proper Velodrome) to form an Olympic Park.

A 60,000 seater minimum, but thinking of Manila's population, I'd go for 80,000+ (even if it is used for the weekly mass in front of 100,000+, there's the potential of large boxing bouts, 100.000+ concerts and the occasional large football game.

Then bid and host an Asian games as a test to see if you can go for the real deal, an Olympics.

There are plans to construct an actual stadium (not an arena)at the Bagong Nayong Pilipino E-City right across from the Mall of Asia complex where SM Arena will be located.

It better be Olympic size. A retractable roof is a bonus, though not necessary. Being upgradable helps too. So you got like a 60,000 seater for a future Asian Games, that gets upgraded by 10,000 or 20,000 seats in preparation for an Olympics.
