History

Jiangwan Stadium was built in 1934 as part of the Greater Shanghai Plan. It hosted its first National Games of China in 1935.

During World War II the stadium was damaged by the Japanese during the Battle of Shanghai.

The Kuomintang government repaired the stadium for the Seventh National Games in 1948. This would be the last National Games before the People’s Republic of China was established in 1949.

It hosted the National Games of China for the last time in 1983 when 8,943 athletes took part in 26 sports.

On 17 October 2010, the stadium hosted an exhibition Australian Football League (AFL) post season match between the Melbourne Demons and the Brisbane Lions.

On 14 May 2017, the stadium will play host to its first AFL premiership match for premiership points when Port Adelaide play the Gold Coast Suns during the 2017 AFL season. This will be the first time an AFL premiership match is played outside of Australasia.
