The stadium features a retractable roof that spans 1,017 feet. The dome’s key characteristic is that it uses one-third of the steel weight per square meter compared to other large span structures of the same scale. It is air-cooled for comfort and designed with a movable roof and retractable seating to support the widest range of sports and leisure events throughout the year. It can host athletics, football, rugby and cricket and can convert from one mode to another within 48 hours.

The stadium is surrounded by a mix of sporting, community and leisure venues and spaces. Its masterplan includes sequences of interconnected public spaces that are scaled for everyday use and major events. It has easy access to the Mass Rapid Transport (MRT) system, adjacent expressways and road network.
