History


The construction of the stadium was completed in January, 2002. However, it was opened on 1 May 2005.


The stadium started serving as the home ground for Jiangsu Suning F.C. in 2007 and it has been serving ever since.


Major Matches


Over the years, there have been many major football matches in this stadium. One of them is Jiangsu Suning vs Shanghai Greenland Shenhua (22 November 2015). These two teams are widely known for their rivalry.


This was the final (1st Leg) of the 2015 Chinese Super League. Although the match ended in a draw as both the teams couldn’t score a goal, it was still a great game.


Controversies


The stadium grabbed a lot of attention in 2013 when the AFC Champions League game between Japan’s Vegalta Sendai and China’s Jiangsu Sainty was about to take place.


The match was supposed to be a controversial event as it was about to take place in Nanjing, a city that had witnessed the brutal invasion of China by Japan’s imperial army.
