I would like to talk about My Dinh National Stadium which hosts various important national and international level events. This multi – purpose stadium is located in My Dinh suburban commune, Tu Liem district, Hanoi capital. This stadium has a seating capacity of 50,000. Also it was officially opened in 2003.

This stadium is not far from my house, actually just about 300m to the north. I often go there whenever there are activities which interest me. People usually visit / attend there to encourage and support sporting events, especially Vietnam teams as well as enjoy entertaining activities.

My Dinh stadium is very important to not only Hanoi but also the whole country due to its irreplaceable functions. It is one of the biggest and most well-equipped stadiums in Vietnam utilized as a showcase to stage a large number of important events namely the 2003 Southeast Asia Games, and the 2008 AFC Champions League.

Moreover, this stadium plays a critical role since many foreigners might get to know/come to know about Vietnam through the activities held there. Therefore, it is essential to promote a good image of it in order to impress foreigners positively.
