The order had followed the government’s enforcement of expropriation and had been notified to house owners along Rachadumnoen Road in order that the government had the right to construct any buildings according to the city plan. At the time, the Crown Property Bureau was assigned to be in charge of the project. The authority also assigned Impressi Italian All Hestero Oriental Company to be responsible for constructing the stadium but the project had to stop during the World War II due to the shortage of construction materials. Later in 1944, PramotePuengsoonthorn proposed the project to the commander and the plan was later approved. Then in 1951, the project was finally carried out.At present, the stadium has been enlarged and its infrastructure has been consecutively improved and developed, for example, the installation of air conditioners is completed in order to facilitate spectators.
