Partially opened in June 2014, the Singapore Sports Hub is a fully integrated, all-in-one destination for sports / sporting events, community events, and entertainment. The centerpiece of the Singapore Sports Hub is the refurbished Singapore National Stadium, having undergone a 4 year renovation, and now features a 55,000 seat capacity, a retractable roof, and capability to change its pitch to accommodate various sports from athletics, to cricket, to soccer.

The Singapore Indoor Stadium, among the premier entertainment destinations in Singapore especially for staging concerts due to its technical facilities and 12,000 seat capacity, has also been incorporated into the Singapore Sports Hub. Its walkway and suspension bridge along the Kallang River is now even more scenic than before, and the platform which connects the Singapore Indoor Stadium to the OCBC Square offers a fantastic view of the Kallang River, city skyline, and even a good view of the Singapore National Stadium.

Because of its proximity to the Kallang River, water sports plays a big part at the Singapore Sports Hub. The OCBC Aquatic Centre is designed for swimming, water-polo, and diving, while the Water Sports Centre caters to canoe and kayak enthusiasts. Family fun can be had at the Splash-N-Surf, which offers half pipe surfing, body boarding, skim boarding, a children's water play area, and even a lazy river.

Land based sports aren't left out at the Singapore Sports Hub. The OCBC Arena is equipped with various courts and facilities to support badminton, basketball, table tennis, netball, floorball, dance practice, and volleyball. The space can even be converted for meetings, conferences, and exhibitions. The Singapore Sports Hub also boasts the first Singapore Sports Museum, which showcases the history of sports in Singapore, challenges faced by athletes, and insights into controversial issues still prevalent in today's sporting world.

If you're planning a visit to the Singapore Sports Hub, do note that while general admission is free, ticket prices for events varies. Also, not all areas are accessible to the public at all times, some have to be booked in advance, while others are only open for seasonal durations. Allocate about 1 hour or so just for sightseeing, and within 2 - 4 hours for attending events. Bring along sufficient water, and wear appropriate attire as well.
