The Athletics Stadium in New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac has been nominated once again in the World Architecture Festival (WAF), the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) said.
In a statement, the BCDA said New Clark City’s internationally accredited sports stadium is vying for the Engineering Prize of the prestigious festival.
The BCDA said that the WAF already included the stadium in the shortlist of Sport Completed Buildings last July.
More than 270 entries were nominated across all Completed Buildings subcategories by the WAF, the largest international architecture event in the world, it added.
The New Clark City Athletics Stadium is the first major sports hub constructed by the government since the completion of the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex in 1934, according to the BCDA.
With a 20,000-seating capacity, a nine-lane 400-meter track and field, and another four-lane warm-up track, the stadium served as a venue for the 30th Southeast Asian Games in 2019.
It was previously nominated as one of the top 10 best stadiums in the world at the annual Stadium of the Year Awards.
The WAF is set to take place at the FIL Exhibition Center in Lisbon, Portugal from December 1 to 3.
