About Kuantan and the Stadium Hockey Wisma Belia

April 25, 2014

The Pahang Hockey Champions Challenge 1 takes place at the Stadium Hockey Wisma Belia in Kuantan, capital city of the Malaysian state of Pahang. Kuantan resides on the east coast of Malaysia, around 280 kilometres east of Malaysia’s capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Well over 400,000 people call Kuantan home, making it the largest city in East Coast Malaysia, while 1.5 million people live in the state of Pahang.

The city of Kuantan has a spectacular balance of stunning historical sites along with several modern activities and venues to visit. Highlights of the city include the State Mosque, the Kuantan river esplanade and river cruise, Panching Caves, Cherating turtle sanctuary and the popular East Coast Shopping Mall.

The Stadium Hockey Wisma Belia was built in 2012 and features two pitches that have previously hosted a women’s World League Round 2 event, as well as the 2009 men’s Asia Cup. The always-energetic Malaysian hockey fan base will undoubtedly help to fill the stands that have a spectator capacity of 8,000.
