Until the construction of Engineering Hall in July 1996 the field has been in that location. The current stadium that was completed in June 1971, although fully equipped, had international scale facilities such as drainage networks ( 5,224 square meters ) which made it possible to play a variety of football , rugby , ball game , 14 kinds of 100M track race.
