Jakarta International Stadium (JIS) is a retractable roof football stadium under construction at Tanjung Priok, Jakarta, Indonesia. Once completed, it will be used as the home ground for Persija Jakarta, after moving from their current stadium, Gelora Bung Karno Stadium and will be mostly used for football matches. The stadium will be able to host 82,000 spectators, making it the largest stadium in Indonesia. Construction of the stadium was delayed due to land dispute and class action lawsuit by former squatters whose homes were demolished to make way for the stadium. Construction finally commenced in late 2019 and scheduled to be completed by December 2021.
The stadium complex is built on 22 hectares of land and the stadium building itself is built on 375.7 square meters of land. This stadium will be the largest capacity retractable roof stadium in Asia and the second-largest retractable roof stadium by capacity in the world, behind AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The stadium is proposed to be the occasional home of the Indonesia national football team, after an agreement between PSSI and PT JAKPRO to use the facility.
