Following the exciting announcement of the WFF 2017 host city – Changsha, capital of Hunan Province – we can now reveal the two stunning venues in Changsha that will stage different parts of the event this year.
The 6 billion RMB (USD $875m) Changsha International Convention and Exhibition Centre opened its doors in November 2016 providing the city of Changsha with a truly state-of-the-art multi-purpose event venue. Covering an area of about 800 acres, the Centre boasts conference rooms, exhibition halls, restaurants and media centre. The core business and exhibition elements of WFF will take place in this fantastic new venue.
However, WFF is first and foremost about football, and Changsha’s flagship football arena – the He Long Stadium – will play host to networking events, the WFF Gala Reception and a range of football activations and presentations. Home of the Changsha Sport Bureau, our Hosting Partner alongside Changsha-based sports promoter More Sports, the 55,000 seater He Long Stadium is one of China’s biggest and most historic, and regularly stages international football fixtures alongside a full programme of other sports and cultural events.
