"This is designed for green building (greenship) certification targeting platinum grade," he uttered.
The stadium itself will stand on a 221,000-square-meter width land with 82,000 spectators capacity.
It is also supported by facilities for people with disabilities such as, 200 seats and 25 toilets, as well as 24 parking lots.
There is also a parking lot with 800 cars and 100 buses capacity, as well as a large public open space 'plaza' with good greenery.
