Merdeka Stadium, Kuala Lumpur
This stadium was purpose built for Malaysia's independance from England back in 1957. Since then it has been the host venue for the Merdeka Cup, Ali v Bugner, Michael Jackson and someone called Avril Lavignie.
Now sits in dotage basking in it's memories when it grabbed centre stage 50 odd years ago. Football's main venue now is Bukit Jalil or Shah Alam in Selangor.
For the history buff or soppy old romantic the stadium backs on to Maharajalela Monorail Station.
