Hanwha E&C to build world’s largest domed arena near Manila (http://www.koreaherald.com/national/Detail.jsp?newsMLId=20110818000649)
Korean builder strives to become one of the world’s 100 largest construction firms

Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corp. began work on the world’s largest domed arena in the Philippines on Thursday.

The work for the $175 million contract, signed on Aug. 4, got underway in a ceremony attended by Hanwha E&C officials including vice chairman Kim Hyun-chung and those from the Filipino Christian organization Iglesia Ni Cristo that issued the contract.

The facility located near Manila, named the Philippine Arena, will be fitted with 50,000 seats and its domed roof will be nearly 36,000 square meters, making it the world’s largest domed arena, the company said.

Hanwha E&C said that the work will be carried out over 30 months to be finished early 2014.

“By winning this contract for building the world’s largest dome arena, the company was able to prove its technological capabilities and the ability to carry out overseas projects,” Kim said in a statement. The company said that in the biddings for the contract, it competed with China’s Jiangsu International and the Philippines’ largest construction company EEI Corp. The project will be conducted in design-build process in which the contractor is responsible for all related processes from designing to building the facility, the company said.

“As the bridgehead for the Southeast Asian market, the project is expected to bring opportunities for more civil engineering and construction projects in the region.”

The project opens a new market for Hanwha E&C, which has focused mostly on the Middle Eastern markets, as it drives to become one of the world’s 100 largest construction companies.

Earlier this year Hanwha Engineering and Construction announced plans to become one of the world’s top 100 builders by 2015 with an annual sales figure of 5 trillion won ($4.65 billion), and win contracts worth 7 trillion won in that year.

The plans also revealed that the company will diversify its overseas portfolio to include civil engineering projects, and to expand into solar power and other renewable energy businesses.

Also as part of the plans, the company hopes to expand its overseas generated income by more than 20 percent each year with the aim of raising 40 percent of its annual revenues from overseas sources by 2015.

In the Middle East, Hanwha E&C has made significant headway this year, winning a series of contracts including an urban development project in Iraq.

The contract, issued by Iraq’s National Investment Commission, is valued at $7.25 billion, making it the largest overseas construction project to be won by a Korean construction firm.

Under the contract, Hanwha Engineering and Construction will build a planned town at a location 25 kilometers east of central Baghdad. The town will be built over an area of 1,830 hectares and contain 100,000 new homes, the company said.

where in Bocaue?
the big fields near St. Paul College of Bocaue?

or near NLEX near Sta. Maria,Bocaue and Marilao boundary?
There was this group kasi that insisted of buying a large portion of land in Bocaue/Marilao/Sta.Maria boundary(near NLEX) and they pursued us on buying our land there that was full of memories of my late lolo and my kite-playing days...tanaw un tollgate dun..
It was rumored that there was this group that was planning to develop the land and the rumor was it will be a theme park...but it didnt happen...And upto now there is nothing on the area..i wonder if its the same group?

seemed like most of the activities here will be for the religious ones most of the time since Iglesia Ni Cristo is part of the deal.

is this really worth only $175million? Pepsi Center in Denver already cost $160million (in 1999), and can only sit 20,000 for basketball. i hope that this arena won't be constructed using sub standard materials.

hehe maybe it'll be just metal frames as the structure
plus metal frames for the bleachers and it'll be padded by wood planks as seats
and it will be open air and will require people to bring their own abanicos..:D

Amazing, this is a country that has really forgotten to believe in what it can do. This is our tragic story, a country blessed in natural resources and prized global workers always doubting anything good that it can do.

Chris Tiu says, I will choose the NT, and crabs, instead of rallying on something inspiring say, "well he is rich that is why he is snobbing the PBA".

Japeth Aguilar chose the NT, and others, basing their assumption on some paparazzi type/kuryente prone blogs say, "well it's because he is getting more money in the NT".

Something monumental like the world's biggest arena in the Philippines is unveiled and the crabs say, "well it's INC so it will be used for religious purposes (so f..ing what?!) and doubting its supposed cost and insinuating that it is substandard."

What gives?

The reason why this country is not moving forward is because most Filipinos do not believe that it can actually be one of the world's best. It is the cancer that's been eating us.

dude with all due respect i don't think the cost of a bag of cement here in the US and labor is the same in the PH.. withstanding the inflation since 1999 i dont think its still fair to compare..:)

Either that or this is New Era University's answer to NU's SM arena.

it's primarily for a religious purpose.

the arena and the stadium will definitely be used to celebrate the INC's 100th founding anniversary on July 27, 2014.

with millions of followers, this religious corporation needs a new venue that is big enough to accommodate the devout ones who will attend. for sure, the central inc grounds in diliman will be too small for such a historic event.

thereafter, it’s obvious the INC wants these venues to become the philippines’ main sports arenas, subject of course to the INC religious calendar.

hmm... someone's ranting lol. in fairness,i think everyone here is very happy for our inc bros. i mean, why shouldnt we be? their leaders have vision which is a very admirable trait.

Having said that, i would like to give my honest opinion. the thought of using these venues as the philippines' primary sports arenas scares the bejesus out of me. we all say that politics and religion dont mix. i will even go as far as saying that sports and religion dont mix too.

WTF!? banal na hapunan on thursday then, say, PBA semis on friday!? I don’t know about you, guys, but as a sports fan, I am a bit turned off lol. Of course, we can hold some matches there but to make them as our main sporting arena?! Let’s give ourselves a break. Hell, Let’s give our INC brothers a break!

it's documented that inc members are unlike catholic churchgoers when it comes to worshipping their god. These inc guys, they really pour their hearts out. They sing, they cry, they empty themselves out in supplication. I bet those venues will be as symbolic to them as the stonehenges were to the druids. If so, why would we want to hold “worldly” activities there such as pba or football games when we all know that these activities are best enjoyed with cursing and by cursing i mean cursing a lot? cursing the lights out of the stadium. Imagine coach reyes trying to behave himself because he comes to realize that he is inside INC grounds pala. That’s lame. I don’t want my basketball like that. Yeah.that’s a good point. But that is just the minor impasse.

The main concern is the Philippines not aspiring for secularism. It seems that government is encouraging these religious organizations to play a vital role in national development. They should not. Their business is their flock, not nation-building.

Government must be free from the influence of any religious organization or sect. how sure are we that inc leaders will not try to influence government like what some catholic bishops are doing right now once these ventures are in order? Let's face reality. because of their religious stance, inc leaders have made many enemies. i'd rather my government to stay out of such affairs and be impartial.

let's commend the INC leadership for these worthwhile twin projects. but when it comes to sports concerns, i will put my trust in the hands of the private sectors for the time being.

I read a column by Manolo Inigo about the arena. It was a blind item, but since the contractor has already confirmed the news, the cat is out of the bag.

I agree with alien_space_bats here. It is really iffy, too, that a religious org uses the word "Philippine" in its building's name, as if the entire country is part of the INC. I've noticed that they have this "edifice complex", and their doctrine says that their buildings are proof of God's love. Which explains why their structures always have to be bigger than those of the competition.

Having said that, this is still a welcome development. I just hope it comes with a development plan for the surrounding area. And that they still allow heckling and other forms of hooliganism during secular events.

I am a devout member of the IGLESIA NI CRISTO (CHURCH OF CHRIST) here in the USA.

It is out of respect that the dome will surely be used for our 100th Anniversary and for many non-religious / secular activities for members and non-members alike.

The Lord God Almighty prophesied in the Holy Scriptures that the true church which was established by our Lord Jesus Christ in Jerusalem in the first century will be restored in the Far East, in these last days, in the islands of the sea.

The fulfillment of which is the IGLESIA NI CRISTO which re-emerged in the Philippines in 1914.

So it is only absolutely correct that the dome should be named the 'Philippine Arena', from our point of view.

Please come and listen to our worship services, bible studies and television programs.

restored? why? has it been demolished/damaged/gone?
from what part of the bible did he said that thing?
and im just curious:
Do you INC guys believe in UFOs?
Do you INC guys believe in Cupid?
how about guardian angels?
How about San Pedro?

It was also prophesized by somebody that the next anti-christ next to hitler(who was also part of his prophesy) would be from a third world country from the far east..hehe rumble rumble na here in RP!

If i lived before, and i wanted to fool somebody, i would pretend to be an evangelist/prophet(those guys that says they were writing through God) then make my prophesy and of course i would say that there will be a formation in the far east because the followers of Christ at that time are being killed and avoided on that land...so its logical to think that these people will settle and make a kingdom in a far away land which at that time,the far east is still largely unknown...

not challenging somebody's faith but im just sharing my view ha...hehe

anyway, i dont like how this group badmouth other religions in their net25 channel..If people believe in them, they dont need to make sira of the others.yun lang ang ayaw ko sa kanila..but all groups are hypocrite nowadays..lead by the RCC..:eek:

Correction, it is not about having badmouth to other religious sectors. It just a defense to those persecutions the Church receives from other religious groups. We don't believe in UFO's, in Cupid, we believe in Angels and we believe in Apostle Pedro not San Pedro. If you want to know more about Iglesia Ni Cristo doctrines and teachings, you are very welcome to approach INC members you know in your area.

Although this is an OT, I would like to give my thoughts on the INC and how it was formed and what it really is.

Before 1914, the founder of INC, the late Felix Manalo was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist Church before he founded his own Church. The Manalos were families of no great means prior to the founding of the INC. I read in Pasugo that Felix and his wife even would beg the "bangkero" to give them a free ride crossing the Ilog Pasig as they don't have any centavo to pay for the fare. While Felix was still a member of the Seventh Day adventist Church, he had this thought of building his own church already. Story goes to say that he even asked one of his friends if they want to earn big bucks. Then his friend asks him how. Felix then replied, "let's sell God." And then INC was born in the Philippines.

Theologically, Iglesia ni Cristo is a cult of Christianity. Its false teachings include:


Denial of the divinity of Jesus Chirst. The divinity of Christ is one of the essential teachings of the Christian faith. Rejecting one or more of Christianity's core teachings places one outside the Christian faith.

Claiming that the Christian Church "was apostatized after the first century" and "was restored to its pristine purity by God by means of His last messenger, brother Felix Y. Manalo..." (Pasugo, July/August 1988, page 7)

The claim that salvation comes only through this church ("This may come as a surprise to many, but the Biblical truth is, though all churches profess to preach God and Christ, there is only one true church that can bring people back to the good graces of God." (Pasugo, November 1973, page 19)

Guys, we all know that it's not good to discuss/debate religion. Nothing good will ever come out of it. Let's respect each other's beliefs and everything will be fine.

BTW, I'm a devout Catholic and my wife is a Protestant so I know what I'm saying.

On topic, wouldn't it be awesome if this will finally end the basketball vs. football debate? We will have a world-class stadium and field in the same area!

I read in Pasugo that Felix and his wife even would beg the "bangkero" to give them a free ride crossing the Ilog Pasig as they don't have any centavo to pay for the fare. While Felix was still a member of the Seventh Day adventist Church, he had this thought of building his own church already. Story goes to say that he even asked one of his friends if they want to earn big bucks. Then his friend asks him how. Felix then replied, "let's sell God." And then INC was born in the Philippines.

Theologically, Iglesia ni Cristo is a cult of Christianity. Its false teachings include:


Denial of the divinity of Jesus Chirst. The divinity of Christ is one of the essential teachings of the Christian faith. Rejecting one or more of Christianity's core teachings places one outside the Christian faith.

Claiming that the Christian Church "was apostatized after the first century" and "was restored to its pristine purity by God by means of His last messenger, brother Felix Y. Manalo..." (Pasugo, July/August 1988, page 7)

The claim that salvation comes only through this church ("This may come as a surprise to many, but the Biblical truth is, though all churches profess to preach God and Christ, there is only one true church that can bring people back to the good graces of God." (Pasugo, November 1973, page 19)

If you are a member of the INC, better know your own history. Have you ever gone to Manalo's residence? INC cursed the idols and images of saints found in the Church of the Catholics but mind you, Felix has one of the best collections of religious statues and images displayed in his residence. :o

And do we have a hard core science-loving human being here? better join this discussion..we need fun after all that had happened in the National team the past days.... :D :D :D

Its like a perfect sniping spot for hired killers..

a 50,000 seat stadium by INC and i'll be damned if they sell dinuguan in one of the food stalls or have medical staff equipped that does blood transfusions. :D

i don't know, i guess i still can't grasp the idea that Felix Manalo was the last messenger of God... but if they allow their venue to be used for sporting events like Azkals home matches or Track and Field events, i just hope the leaders of INC won't expect anything in return like support for their beliefs or such.

it's primarily for a religious purpose.

the arena and the stadium will definitely be used to celebrate the INC's 100th founding anniversary on July 27, 2014.

with millions of followers, this religious corporation needs a new venue that is big enough to accommodate the devout ones who will attend. for sure, the central inc grounds in diliman will be too small for such a historic event.

thereafter, it’s obvious the INC wants these venues to become the philippines’ main sports arenas, subject of course to the INC religious calendar.

hmm... someone's ranting lol. in fairness,i think everyone here is very happy for our inc bros. i mean, why shouldnt we be? their leaders have vision which is a very admirable trait.

Having said that, i would like to give my honest opinion. the thought of using these venues as the philippines' primary sports arenas scares the bejesus out of me. we all say that politics and religion dont mix. i will even go as far as saying that sports and religion dont mix too.

WTF!? banal na hapunan on thursday then, say, PBA semis on friday!? I don’t know about you, guys, but as a sports fan, I am a bit turned off lol. Of course, we can hold some matches there but to make them as our main sporting arena?! Let’s give ourselves a break. Hell, Let’s give our INC brothers a break!

it's documented that inc members are unlike catholic churchgoers when it comes to worshipping their god. These inc guys, they really pour their hearts out. They sing, they cry, they empty themselves out in supplication. I bet those venues will be as symbolic to them as the stonehenges were to the druids. If so, why would we want to hold “worldly” activities there such as pba or football games when we all know that these activities are best enjoyed with cursing and by cursing i mean cursing a lot? cursing the lights out of the stadium. Imagine coach reyes trying to behave himself because he comes to realize that he is inside INC grounds pala. That’s lame. I don’t want my basketball like that. Yeah.that’s a good point. But that is just the minor impasse.

The main concern is the Philippines not aspiring for secularism. It seems that government is encouraging these religious organizations to play a vital role in national development. They should not. Their business is their flock, not nation-building.

Government must be free from the influence of any religious organization or sect. how sure are we that inc leaders will not try to influence government like what some catholic bishops are doing right now once these ventures are in order? Let's face reality. because of their religious stance, inc leaders have made many enemies. i'd rather my government to stay out of such affairs and be impartial.

let's commend the INC leadership for these worthwhile twin projects. but when it comes to sports concerns, i will put my trust in the hands of the private sectors for the time being.

seemed like most of the activities here will be for the religious ones most of the time since Iglesia Ni Cristo is part of the deal.

is this really worth only $175million? Pepsi Center in Denver already cost $160million (in 1999), and can only sit 20,000 for basketball. i hope that this arena won't be constructed using sub standard materials.

The $175million is only for the contract of building it(contractor is a Korean company), not mentioned was the cost of the architect which is a company from australia and the project engineer from the UK. Its not yet done, so you can't say the exact cost of the whole structure.

I doubt worship service will be done here except for some gatherings like anniversaries and I think this will be used mostly on sports activities.
I also think that PBA games might be played here as this is not like a "kapilya".
You can't stop the bad mouths in a game and I believe that will not be forbidden in this dome as like I said, this is not a "kapilya", so I believe this will be a dome like other domes, only bigger.

I know you are just exicited with the developments in your church but this kind of project is part of the ministries of your church and this is something that other denominations/religion have also been doing for hundreds of years now. They're hitting two birds in one stone...

The religious sector has always been a partner of the government in providing health services, quality education and venues for social gathering for the people but the truth is access to these facilities/institution is not free even for members.

It's imperative that they open this commercially, maintenance alone of a structure this size will cost millions annually.

So the design will be more like an auditorium which is more suitable for concerts/performing arts than basketball games

Perfect for the anniversary of the church and other large events like the opening/closing ceremonies of multi-sport competitions.

From what I've gleaned reading through the SkyscraperCity forums, the domed arena will be part of the Bocaue campus of New Era University. The said development will include the Erano G. Manalo Medical Center, the Eduardo V. Manalo Conference Center, an annex of the College of Evangelical Ministry, and one or two football and track stadia. The Philippine Arena itself will be a supersized version of UT Arlington's Texas Hall, only the seats are raised and arranged around the stage. When it's finished, it could overtake the Blue Eagle Gym as the biggest on-campus sports facility in the country. I wonder how this will affect NEU's athletic recruitment, and their sports programs as a whole. This could attract talented INC athletes who would otherwise go elsewhere due to NEU's reputation for not prioritizing sports (ie. Paul Artadi). Are they planning to jump ship from the NCRAA to the NCAA too?

I wouldn't be surprised if the Philippine Arena and the new athletic equipment (new sports complex/new NEU campus etc...) attracted international students/recruits. Seeing as to how NCAA Men's Basketball is venturing into the international market with their international preseason games in China etc, the Philippine Arena could become a reason to hold these games in the Philippines. Not only NCAA Men's Basketball, but even preseason/regular NBA games could be held in the Philippine Arena.

Looking back on the previous posts, it's ironic how people are reacting to this new Arena. In most countries, when a group develops/creates something that brings great honor/respect to their country...people are also proud and are very thankful.

But then again, like what jerby said:

Amazing, this is a country that has really forgotten to believe in what it can do. This is our tragic story, a country blessed in natural resources and prized global workers always doubting anything good that it can do.


The reason why this country is not moving forward is because most Filipinos do not believe that it can actually be one of the world's best. It is the cancer that's been eating us.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_indoor_arenas_by_capacity

Just so we're all in the same page when it comes to discussing "largest indoor arenas". Take a look at the "Arenas under construction" section..guess who's #1 :cool:

Oh and the same architectural firm POPULOUS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Populous_%28architects%29), will be creating the Philippine Arena. If you click on the link, you'll notice that they were also the ones responsible for creating the other indoor arenas listed.

Amazing, this is a country that has really forgotten to believe in what it can do. This is our tragic story, a country blessed in natural resources and prized global workers always doubting anything good that it can do.

Chris Tiu says, I will choose the NT, and crabs, instead of rallying on something inspiring say, "well he is rich that is why he is snobbing the PBA".

Japeth Aguilar chose the NT, and others, basing their assumption on some paparazzi type/kuryente prone blogs say, "well it's because he is getting more money in the NT".

Something monumental like the world's biggest arena in the Philippines is unveiled and the crabs say, "well it's INC so it will be used for religious purposes (so f..ing what?!) and doubting its supposed cost and insinuating that it is substandard."

What gives?

The reason why this country is not moving forward is because most Filipinos do not believe that it can actually be one of the world's best. It is the cancer that's been eating us.

Is it hard to accept if the Philippine's could create the World's Largest Domed-Arena? And just so you know, the Geogia Dome is considered a "Domed-Stadium"...which is also quite different from a "Domed-Arena"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Dome

yea but the Philippine Dome will not be use as a sports arena its for a religious purpose and no one not even the President can tell the INC to do so.
btw the Georgia Dome is considered a dome stadium/arena they held basketball,concerts,wrestling,soccer even a rodeo event,lots of football stadium in the US cant do that.

Watch the video posted on youtube about the Arena, even the architectural firm "POPULOUS" expressed that the arena will be used for various events and will not be limited to "religious" purposes.


...btw the Georgia Dome is considered a dome stadium/arena they held basketball,concerts,wrestling,soccer even a rodeo event,lots of football stadium in the US cant do that.

I respectfully disagree. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgia_Dome..
"The Georgia Dome is a domed stadium located in Atlanta, Georgia, United States..."

Don't be too negative AMIR , it shows on your posts ;)

the iglesia ni cristo centennial project is something that all Filipino should be proud of.. it shouldn't matter if the dome will subsequently be use for recreational purposes.. the fact is the dome will serve as a living testament of how great Filipinos are..

Dare to ask why?

imagine a minority religious group which starts from scratch in 1914

managing to penetrate and establish thousands of churches here in RP and 98 other countries and territories..

this minority religious group has no debt or loan to speak of and is now building great churches around the globe and now the biggest arena in the world funded solely by INC members "handog" ang "abuloy"..

did you ever imagine that the person who established this church in 1914 is a simple man, not born of riches?

did you ever ask why what's in this church that it was able to grow in multitudes and achieved its glorious status?

it takes a lot to make people as organized, disciplined and committed as that of the majority of INC members..

it takes a lot more for leaders to be honest and incorruptible when face with great powers and huge wealth.

INC leaders are living testament of honesty. Their churches are evidence of money well kept and well spent.

I believe Filipino people will greatly benefit if our political leaders run our country like how INC leaders run their flocks. Future political leaders must consider taking leadership training under the INC executive ministers. :)

when we see something good let us set aside the "carab mentality". let us just be thankful that a 3rd world country like ours can still built outstanding structures comparable and even greater to that of the G8 countries.

have we seen even just one INC chapel crumbling from an earthquake? there is none i guess.. i am almost sure that the structures to be build under the roof of INC's ciudad de victoria here in bocaue are world class..

bocauenos will greatly benefit from this INC project in terms of potential jobs, social services and tourism.[/QUOTE]

This could be the future venue of competitions in the National Athletic Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (NAASCU) maybe as early as the 14th season in academic year 2014-2015.

last thing i heard it will not be like the usual arena. It will be more of a super big auditorium/stage/theater.
like this:

stage play..

I also saw some road construction connecting the land to the NLEX(maybe thats why the tollgates were adjusted).
And i was wrong about it being near my place. it isnt that near. however the condominium is. And construction is really loud especially at midnight!
Its like a giant jackhammer sound! dug dug dug dug dug x infinity!

wow. is there like a contest with these religious groups on building arenas. i heard there is also a construction of an arena in the cavite area for the 4th watch pentecostal church. and of course the KJC king dome of Quiboloy in davao. i wont be surprised if villanueva, velarde, soriano etc. would be constructing their own soon. haha

Bro. Mike already has his "temple" in Paranaque. It's near the Airport.
Let's give credit where credit is due. If the Philippine Arena is indeed an Arena similar to O2 Arena or other European stadia, then we would have one more world-class sporting venue to support future sport event hosting bids (2026 Manila Asiad, anyone???). Also the INC has their "Unity Games", and the Grand Evangelical Missions, plus other shows of strength where they demonstrate to the world how large they have become. Philippine Arena is one of these "shows of strength". Kudos to INC for investing in an arena though. It's good for them and for the country in general, and for Bulacan in particular.

World-class arena to rise in Davao City by 2015

DAVAO CITY, May 10 -- A world-class, multi-purpose arena currently under construction in Davao City is expected to be completed by 2015.

According to Pastor Apollo Quiboloy of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ the Name Above Every Name, the center dubbed the King Dome will be the country’s largest dome and can seat about 52,000 people. The five-hectare site is located in the 23-hectare Kingdom of Jesus Christ compound beside the Davao International Airport.

Pastor Quiboloy said that the dome-shaped facility was originally intended for the church’s activities but on special arrangements can also be used to host events such as concerts and basketball games.

“It will have a FIBA (International Basketball Federation) standard basketball court,” said the Pastor who added that the entire budget for the King Dome is estimated to run P3-billion.

If completed it will be the second FIBA standard basketball court in the City next to the 8,000-seater University of Southeastern Philippine (USEP) gymnasium. By its size alone it can more than adequately host PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) or even NBA (National Basketball Association) games since it will be bigger than Araneta Coliseum and the Mall Of Asia Arena, both facilities has a capacity of 20,000 people.

Groundbreaking of the King Dome began in 2012 and was originally intended as a worship cathedral to fit a growing throng of the Kingdom’s followers as the existing facilities can no longer accommodate increasingly larger gatherings.

The Kingdom of Jesus Christ with its full members and covenant partners is estimated to number 6-million people worldwide.

According to the Pastor, the King Dome will feature the latest audio-video projection systems and high-definition video production equipment which can project the Kingdom’s worship and thanksgiving activities over its two spill-over plazas, the 2-hectare front plaza and the 3-hectare rear plaza for crowds which can no longer be accommodated in the dome. Sophisticated in-house broadcast facilities can also beam activities inside the dome throughout the world.

Another hallmark of the dome according to the Pastor is its water-cooled airconditioning system which consumes 30% lesser energy compared to conventional types.

The construction is estimated to run for two years and is expected to be completed by 2015 in time for the Kingdom’s 30th anniversary.

The King Dome is expected to fortify Davao City’s niche as a top MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibits) destination in the country, aside from the King Dome, the City presently has the USEP gym and the SMX center in SM Lanang to host large conventions, gatherings, concerts and sporting events.

I don't think it can be used for basketball events due to the stage design and the audience's seating..

did not see anything about the dome hosting a BASKETBALL game. the design is a theater stage. can that stage be replaced by a basketball court if needed? then the audience can only watch from one side of the court.

That is what i am trying to point out. You just repeated what was raised in the previous page. There were basketball games that were played in stage setting like what was discussed in the previous page. But who would want to watch that.

There is an unwritten rule here in this forum. And that is to give an effort to backread. Its not a pain anyway, it is just a page away.
