Ciudad de Victoria in Bocaue, Bulacan will never be the same again with the unveiling of the Philippine Arena, said to be the world's largest indoor multipurpose arena.

Built by the Iglesia Ni Cristo, it will be the venue of the biggest music and sporting events to be staged in the Philippines. But before all of that, the Philippine Arena will be the centerpiece of INC’s grand centennial celebration on July 27.

The Philippine Arena has a capacity of 55,000 people. To paint you a mental picture, its floor area is twice that of the Smart Araneta Colisuem.

Work on the arena is on full blast with workers and technical people working through its final week before INC's celebration. To give you a better grasp of its size, we're taking you on a photographic walk through the Philippine Arena.
