The design, focused on the facades and exterior appearance of the stadium, is aiming at a cost-efficient concept for a developing country which takes the use of recycled and recyclable materials into consideration.

The differing design elements of the Grand Stand Facade on the one hand, as semi-transparent, monochrome and closed cladding, and the Tribune Façade on the other hand, as ornamental, perforated and breathing cover, can easily be prefabricated locally and installed in situ.
