Workers Stadium Beijing

The Workers Stadium (Gongren Tiyuguan) in Beijing will be one of the venues for the Olympic soccer tournament in 2008. The 72,000 capacity stadium which is set in a park is the home ground of Beijing's Guoan, who play their home games here or at the smaller 33,000 capacity Beijing Fengtai Stadium on Sundays. There are rumours the team may move to the new National Stadium after the Olympics.

Guoan, sponsored by Hyundai, are a solid China Super League outfit and rank with Shanghai's Shenhua and Dalian's Shide as one of China's top teams.

The multi-purpose stadium was the main stadium for the 1990 Asian Games.

The nearest subway station to the Workers Stadium is Dongsishitiao on the Circle Line - not far from the Sanlitun entertainment area.
