    The Philippine Arena, that’s what the world’s biggest dome arena is to be called, and it is now being build in Bocaue, Bulacan. No, this is not a hoax, the Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) is building the Philippine Arena as it’s centennial project in time for the 100th anniversary of the INC in 2014.
    According to the Korean Herald, Hanwha Engineering and Construction Corporation (Hanwha) won the bid to build the Philippine Arena. Contracts have already been signed (worth $175 million) and a groundbreaking was already done three days ago, August 17. The project is expected to take 30 months to build and will be ready for the INC’s centennial celebrations in 2014.
    With a reported seating capacity of 50,000, the Philippine Arena is to be built on 74,000 square meters of land in Bocaue, Bulacan in Ciudad de Victoria. When finished, it will be three times bigger than the Seoul Olympics Gymnastics Stadium. Its domed roof will be nearly 36,000 square meters thus laying claim to the title of ‘World’s Largest Dome Arena’.
    The Philippine Arena is expected to be the venue not just of the Iglesia Ni Cristo’s centennial celebration but other events of the group. No word yet if the Philippine Arena will be open for Philippine sporting events.
