Patriot Candrabaga Stadium in Bekasi City, West Java Province
It is true most tourists are interested in visiting natural attractions instead of regular places like a local stadium. However, it would be a different story if they come to Patriot Candrabaga Stadium in Bekasi City. To be exact, the location is in Kayuringin Jaya Village and it belongs to Bekasi Selatan Sub-District. The prime function is indeed to facilitate sports events, especially football matches. Still, the stadium also attracts tourists due to its history and size. Visitors are allowed to enter the stadium aside from the days of the matches, in fact. As long as they get the keeper’s concern, they are allowed to get in the site and enjoy several activities like exploration and photography. Moreover, some people also come to the stadium to learn the history.
Like other stadiums, Patriot Candrabaga features a soccer field located in the midst of it and surrounded by running tracks. What about the size? It is indeed grandiose! It is even said the stadium is able to accommodate up to 2000 people. Thanks to the renovation. It has a better condition and capacity as compared to before, which only could accommodate 1400 audiences. It is because the local government wants to apply AFC standards to their stadium. Even it features about 60 CCTVs and other sophisticated features.
Exploring Patriot Candrabaga Stadium
Well, the best time to visit Patriot Candrabaga Stadium is definitely during the match day. That doesn’t mean tourists can only come to the site at the time, though. Even everyone is allowed to enter the stadium in regular days as long as they get the permission from the keeper. Usually, these people want to learn the history of it. They either ask a local guide or the management regarding the information. It is said the construction was done in 1980 and it had undergone a renovation in 2012. Also, it got the international-level standard in 2014!
For those coming during the match day, they must buy the ticket first before entering the stadium. It is common sense, after all. Also, they must not forget to carry a camera and some snacks. Another tip is that they must come either with friends or families to make the atmosphere merrier. So, what about those who come on regular days?
What they won’t get is the merriment. No wonder, they won’t find any match at the time. The good thing is the stadium becomes peaceful and more accessible. That means visitors can explore the site freely without the disturbance of other visitors. Once again, it takes a permission from the keeper to be able to explore the stadium during regular days!
