  Adjacent to the Expo Site in Pudong New Area, Shanghai Oriental Sports Center is a riverside scenic spot along the beautiful Huangpu River, the mother river of Shanghai. It is composed of an indoor stadium, a natatorium, an outdoor diving pool and Oriental Sports Mansion. The theme of “water” finds its full expression in the architectural complex in the Center that adds splendor to the riverside man-made lake.

  The competitions of swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and water polo of the 14th FINA World Championships were held here. Among the three splendid venues, the Indoor Stadium will be utilized as the competition venue during the ISU World Figure Skating Championships 2015. The Stadium has 17,923 seats, including 14,457 fixed ones and 3,466 retractable ones.
