Its balcony typed structure presents a full view at any place to the spectators for a clear view. The stadium has a seating capacity for 17,443 spectators along with supporters seats of 500, which are located at the left side of headquarters. The supporters seats, equipped in 1999, are the exclusive place for supporters and they are the first and only facilities among domestic stadiums.

In 2003, the stadium was upgraded with full repair works such as an all-season lawn, up-to-date sound facilities, and new lockers for players. The electric scoreboard and lightings, sound facilities and convenient facilities are rated as good as those of the World Cup stadiums.[1]
