Named after Aung San, the 40,000 seat stadium is still the largest stadium in Myanmar and was the national stadium until the mid-1980s. The stadium was the main venue for 1961 and 1969 South East Asian Peninsular Games. While it is no longer the main venue of choice for international level competitions, the stadium is still heavily used for Myanmar National League football matches.
Aung San National Indoor Stadium, located next to the outdoor stadium, is used for indoor sports competitions.
