The national stadium occupies the site of the 1885 battle that helped establish the political supremacy of Ugyen Wangchuck, Bhutan's first king. There are regular football matches here and it's also the focus for holiday celebrations such as the King's birthday (21 to 23 February). See local newspapers for upcoming sporting events.
