Despite the disruption due to the coronavirus in the country, China builds the world’s biggest and most beautiful brand-new stadium. The country of the dragon is soaring above the pandemic outburst. Soon, the arena will undoubtedly raise China’s GDP to more than half of what it lost during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Guangzhou Evergrande’s brand-new stadium is a massive project worth $1.7 billion. China’s jaw-dropping stadium will supersede FC Barcelona’s Camp Nou as the world’s biggest arena.
The construction of the eye-catching stadium began three weeks ago. China’s architects designed the arena to be the world’s most beautiful and largest stadium with the appearance of a blooming lotus flower. Certainly, it will be home to the Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande. The Lotus model also surpassed seven other new design ideas from the U.K., Australia, and the U.S.
Originally, Xu Jiayin, President of the Evergrande Group, designed the lotus-shaped building. Later, an American architect, Hasan Syed, in Shanghai started managing the stadium’s construction. The Lotus flower is a central emblem in Chinese culture and is used in various masterpieces and architecture. The elegance of the flower rises from the mud, yet reflects the purity and perfection of the heart and mind.
The Opening of the World’s Biggest Stadium
China will open the world’s biggest and most stunning stadium in 2022 in Guangzhou. It will comprise 168 VIP boxes and 16 VVIP boxes. The stadium is expected to elevate Chinese football to another level in world games, according to Xia Haijun, vice chairman of the real estate Evergrande conglomerate.
In particular, the brand-new stadium will accommodate 100,000 seats. Indeed, the Chinese stadium will surpass FC Barcelona’s Camp Nou as the world’s biggest football arena. However, the latter might reclaim its title once they successfully reconstruct the stadium’s capacity from 99,354 to 105,000 in 2024.
Mr. Haijun also said they anticipate the opening ceremony of the Asian Cup 2023 to take place in the brand-new arena. He further revealed arrangements to build at least two new stadiums in China with a capacity of 80,000 or even more.
“Evergrande Stadium will become a new world-class landmark comparable to the Sydney Opera House in Australia and Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It will be an important symbol of Chinese football to the world,” said Xia Haijun.
In 2010, Mr. Haijun joined the team of Guangzhou. The Guangzhou club has won a total of eight Chinese Super League championships and two Asian Champions League trophies following his appointment as a vice president of Evergrande.
