Jakarta-owned PT Jakarta Propertindo, or Jakpro, said the public is welcome to visit the stadium from January 14 to March 26.

“We’re open to general public visits which is targeted until March,” project manager at Jakpro Arry Wibowo said on Friday, as reported by Antara.

According to him, developer decided to open the sports facility early to the public so that everyone has the same opportunity to enjoy the stadium while also preventing any potential crowds during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“To make sure everyone can enjoy [the venue], there will be schedule for public visit,” Wibowo explained.

However, he also reminded that because the stadium is still under construction, there are certain areas that the public can’t visit for safety reasons.

Jakarta provincial government plans to soft launch the stadium in February, after the initial plan to hold the event in December last year was canceled amid growing concerns about the spread of COVID-19 variant Omicron.

Located in Tanjung Priok, North Jakarta, JIS is planned to have a capacity of 82,000 and will become the third biggest stadium in the world and the biggest in Southeast Asia. JIS will also have retractable roof that will make it possible to host various events like concerts.

Jakpro president director Widi Amanasto confirmed on December that the stadium will be completed before Formula E race in Jakarta starts in June.

Government and developers aim to make JIS one of the iconic sites to impress the Formula E audience.
