Before the station’s construction, the closest MRT stations to the National Stadium were the Kallang and Lavender stations which were quite far away. Additionally, traffic bottlenecks restricted entry to the National Stadium during events at the facility. The Marina Route (MRL) was confirmed to serve the National Stadium when stations for the line were revealed. The line runs along Stadium Boulevard. When the MRL merged into the CCL in 2001, the station became part of Stage 1 of the Circle Line (CCL).
A WOHA architectural team led by Wong Mun Summ and Richard Hassell designed the stadium station. In 2000, the Marina Line Architectural Design Competition, jointly hosted by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and the Singapore Institute of Architects (SIA), commissioned two stations[d]. The station was built to manage huge people during important events, with an open-air concourse and plaza space to accommodate the masses and avoid overcrowding inside the station. The station’s open-ended design allows it to link to future ground-level constructions.
