New 40,000 seater stadium opens in Malaysia

Wednesday 26th February 2020

Malaysian champions Johor Darul Ta'zim (JDT for short) have officially opened their new 40,000 seaters stadium.

The Sultan Ibrahim Stadium is named after the current ruler of the state of Johor and cost around £35m to build.

The stadium has been designed to look like a banana leaf was opened with a 15 minute firework and lights show, accompanied by a live performance by singer Leona Lewis.

JDT have won the Malaysian Super League for each of the last 6 seasons as well as the Asian equivalent of the Champions League in 2015.
