Penang City Stadium
The Asia Pacific Masters Games 2018 opening ceremony will be held on 8 Sept 2018 at the iconic City Stadium in the heart of George Town. The City Stadium is the oldest stadium in Malaysia and was built before the country gained independence from the British.
The British government first mooted the idea to build a stadium in Penang in 1932. But due to World War Two, they had to wait until 1945 before the ground-breaking ceremony was done. The stadium, which was known as the Penang Island National Stadium then, was opened to the public on 1st September 1956.
