According to the President, the stadium’s tribune now accommodates 20,000 single spectator seats, decorated with Kawung batik motifs. The field of stadium is also equipped with Zoysia Japonica grass, just like that one at Gelora Bung Karno stadium in Jakarta, he added.
 
“The stadium also has a roofed tribune so spectators can be protected from the rain and the heat,” the Cabinet Secretariat's website quoted the President as saying.
 
The Head of State also explained that the stadium uses lighting with the capacity of 1,500 lux, equipped with a large electronic score board. In the meantime, in dressing rooms for players (playing at the stadium), there are hot water pools for every team.
 
“Therefore, Manahan stadium is fitting to host both national and international sporting events,” the President was quoted as saying.
 
As previously reported, the construction of Manahan stadium kick-started in August 2018 with the progress already reaching 96 percent.
 
Ministry of Public Works and Public Housing has set the target of the completion of the stadium’s renovation on schedule, which is in September this year. In the renovation of the stadium, Minister of Public Works and Public Housing has assigned Directorate General of Cipta Karya to continue coordination with Solo city government.
