The Singapore Sports Hub is a fully integrated sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub located on a 35-hectare site in Kallang. Comprising a unique cluster development of world-class sports facilities within the city, the Singapore Sports Hub is envisioned to be the region’s premier sports, entertainment and lifestyle destination.
Since the Sports Hub commenced operations in June 2014, it has hosted a wide range of marquee sporting events such as the 2015 SEA Games and Asean Para Games, BNP Paribas WTA Finals, WTT Grand Smash, ATP 250-Singapore Tennis Open, International Champions Cup, Suzuki Cup, OCBC Cycle, FINA Swimming World Cup and the HSBC Singapore Rugby Sevens Series. It has also played host to community events including, GetActive! Singapore, National Day Parade 2016, and quarterly Community Play Days.
The Singapore Sports Hub was established under a public-private partnership (PPP) project agreement between Sport Singapore (SportSG) and SportsHub Pte Ltd (SHPL) in 2010. Under the project agreement, SHPL was contracted to design, build, finance and operate the Sports Hub over a 25-year period from 2010 to 2035. SHPL took on the upfront financing costs and risk for the construction of the Sports Hub. In return, SportSG would pay an annual fee from 2014 until the end of the concession term in 2035 to cover the operating and financing costs.
The terms of the project agreement give SportSG the right to end the partnership at any time during the contract period and take over ownership of the Sports Hub.

As laid out in Vision 2030, Singapore’s sports masterplan, our goal is to bring better and more innovative facilities and programmes closer to Singaporeans, so they can experience and enjoy active living at their doorsteps.
Slated to transform into a vibrant precinct by 2030, the Kallang Alive precinct is spread across approximately 90 hectares of real estate. It aims to use innovation, design and creative programming to promote a sporting and active lifestyle in Singapore, and to further enhance Singapore’s reputation as a destination for sport and world-class entertainment.
As part of Kallang Alive!, SportSG is introducing more sporting and community facilities, with a view to creating more opportunities for Singaporeans and residents to use and enjoy these facilities.
Key infrastructure around the Sports Hub that will support the Kallang Alive! vision are as follows:
The KFH will comprise one full-sized natural turf pitch, Singapore’s first sheltered full-sized synthetic pitch, one half-sized pitch for five-a-side or seven-a-side training and matches, as well as three sheltered futsal pitches. The KFH will be an anchor training facility for the Football Association of Singapore and the ActiveSG Football Academy to catalyse Unleash the Roar! – our national movement aimed at raising the level of football.
The KTC will feature 7 indoor courts and 14 outdoor courts. Besides being the new National Training Centre for tennis, it will also be home to the ActiveSG Tennis Academy, which supports pathway development across various levels.
Together with the National Youth Sport Institute, Singapore Sport Institute and other stakeholders, we will co-create the next-generation National High-Performance Centre for Team Singapore athletes and future sporting aspirants. Vibrant urban community sport spaces such as speed climbing and parkour may be developed to expand the offerings for youths. Singapore's first high performance Cycling Central - comprising a velodrome, BMX and pump tracks - is also under study for development.
A collaborative effort by various public agencies will transform the green stretch along the waterfront spaces of the Geylang River and Jalan Benaan Kapal into an inclusive "green community" filled with greenery, running trails, and improved access through park connectors. The proposed facilities will include play areas for all ages, and event spaces for various community programmes and activities.
The existing Kallang Theatre and its adjoining areas will be redeveloped into an integrated sport, entertainment, and lifestyle centre. This development will include a multi-purpose indoor arena capable of hosting eSports, sporting and entertainment events, a themed hotel and hospitality offerings to enhance the event experience within the Kallang Alive precinct, and office spaces to bring together sports medicine clinics, sport tech start-ups, international sport federations or sport-related businesses.
We have plans to develop a mobility deck that would trace parts of the circular airfield of the former Kallang Airport. This would enhance walkability and connectivity for the Kallang Alive precinct. It could also serve as an elevated walking or running route to further activate the precinct.
