History and description

The stadium was renamed Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in 1984 in commemoration of the country's founding father, Sukarno. The Stadium Utama Gelora Bung Karno, often abbreviated to SUGBK or simply GBK, was built between 1958 and 1962 for the 1962 Asian Games. The stadium was renamed Gelora Bung Karno Stadium in 1984 in commemoration of the country's founder Sukarno. The stadium was named after Indonesia's first president, Soekarno, and can initially hold about 110,000 spectators. Its construction was financed by loans from the former Soviet Union. Between 1969 and 2001, during the regime of president Soeharto, the stadium was called Stadion Utama Senayan to remove references to his ousted predecessor.

In 1985, up to 150,000 spectators were said to have attended the Championship final match between PSMS and Persib at an athletics track, far surpassing the official capacity.

The stadium was equipped with new and improved amenities such as 360-degree LED screens, additional seating, and a press box. In 2007, the capacity of the stadium was reduced to 88,000 following a refurbishment for the 2007 AFC Asian Cup. During the Championships, SUGBK hosted five first round group matches, a quarter-final, and the final between Iraq and Saudi Arabia (1-0). The stadium was equipped with new and improved amenities such as 360-degree LED screens, additional seating, and a press box.

In 2016, Stadion Utama Gelora Bung Karno underwent extensive refurbishment in preparation for the 2018 Asian Games that will be held in Indonesia. Works included the replacement of benches by single seats, and an upgrade of facilities. This reduced capacity to 76,000 seats. The stadium reopened in January 2018.
