The History of Lumpinee Stadium, Bangkok:
The Lumpinee Stadium in Bangkok was opened on December 8, 1956. It is next to the Rajadamnern the most famous Muay Thai stadium in Thailand, if not far beyond the country’s borders.
Many internationally successful fighters have already fought in Lumpinee Stadium and delivered a unique spectacle.
The Lumpinee Stadium is under the patronage of the Royal Thai Army and pursues the following main objectives:

One of them was the Lightweight Champion Dieselnoi choir Thanasukarn, which could claim the title four years unbeaten for themselves. After him simply ran out of opponents, he was forced to withdraw.
The relocation of Lumpinee Muay Thai Stadium Bangkok:
The owner of the land on which the former Lumpinee Stadium stood, had plans for commercial expansion. Thus, the Lumpinee Stadium, had only completed one year lease, looking for a new place.
General Prayut Chun-O-Cha was finally able to share a piece of land in the Ram Intra Road on the site of the Army Sports Development Centre. This made it possible to build a very modern stadium, which can provide an exceptional sporting experience to the Muay Thai fans. The Construction of the new Lumpinee stadium was beginning in August 2012.
