This Fridays event at Lumpinee stadium will be the last ever at this historical building.

Lumpinee Stadium first opened its doors in 1956 and is known as the Mecca of Muay Thai even though it was built more than a decade after its rival Rajadamnern stadium. These two stadiums have hosted and created some of the most exciting Muay Thai fighters in history.

Samart Payakaroon
Dieselnoi Chor Thanasukarn
Buakaw Por. Pramuk
Anuwat Kaewsamrit

All is not lost though as the brand new state of the art Lumpinee stadium has now been completed and is due to open on the 11th February. It’s slightly away from the original location so could hinder attendance by the average tourists, but the significant modernisation certainly adds a touch of glamour to fight night and the hardcore fight fans won’t be deterred.

I myself will miss the old place, yes it was dirty and yes it fell behind with the times but the atmosphere and the feel of the place on a packed fight night was something that cannot be replaced.
