I first learned about the Philippine Arena on Pinoyexchange a few days ago, but it was just last night (while my son was at the playground) that I really read the story on it. There is a big discussion on PEX since the project is being made by a Korean contractor, Hanhwa E&C and it is funded and owned by the INC (Iglesia ni Cristo).
The Philippine Arena is expected to be the world’s biggest domed arena at its completion in 2014, just in time for the centenary or the 100th year founding anniversary of the Iglesia ni Cristo by Felix Manalo. The construction has started in Bocaue, Bulacan at a complex called “Ciudad de Victoria” (Victory City).
Too bad that a few Pinoys are a little cynical since it’s a project of the INC.
You can find pictures and more information on The Philippine Arena thread on PEx.
