On August 6, Juche 102 (2013), Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, who pays close attention to the development of physical culture and sports, visited the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium in the final stage of its renovation.

Inaugurated in April 1973, the indoor stadium had hosted national and international games and other important events including conferences of national significance over the past decades.

Kim Jong Un had proposed to renovate it into a modern and comprehensive indoor stadium and clarified the ways and means to this end.

He emphasized that as the stadium often hosts various kinds of sports games and major celebrations of national significance, it should be renovated in a magnificent way.

He gave his opinions on renovating the stadium into a modern one, such as installing a four-sided screen, introducing illumination system, setting up a large clock and flat screen and replacing spectators’ seats with new ones.

Then he stressed that quality should be ensured in executing the remaining part of the renovation project so that the stadium could be refurbished on a high standard.

True to his instructions, the builders worked day and night and finally completed the renovation project, as challenging as a huge construction project, on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the founding of the DPRK.

On September 14 Kim Jong Un visited the renovated stadium and making the rounds of different places for hours, acquainted himself with its renovation in detail.

Looking round the room dedicated to its history, he stated that one could easily learn only after a glance at the chronicle of leadership of the President and Chairman the painstaking efforts they had devoted for the development of the country’s physical culture and sports and the physical training of the working people, youth and schoolchildren.

When he went into the playing arena, he expressed satisfaction, saying that it looked bright and nice as its ceiling had been decorated with metal plates, and that as the floor had been covered with new materials and all the seats replaced with new ones, it looked completely renovated.

He learned about the elasticity of the floor and echoing, and praised that the stadium was on a world standard, adding that the stadium can host any international games.

Expressing his satisfaction with the stadium, he spoke highly of the officials and working people who had fulfilled with credit the tasks assigned by the Party.

On October 3 the renovated Pyongyang Indoor Stadium was opened to the public.
