Shanghai Indoor Stadium (simplified Chinese: 上海体育馆; traditional Chinese: 上海體育館; pinyin: Shànghǎi Tǐyùguǎn) is a multi-purpose gymnasium, in Shanghai, China.

Hailed as a great feat of engineering at the time of its construction, the building is now considered dated and out-classed by newly constructed sporting facilities nearby. It is now used mostly for entertainment events, rather than sporting competitions.

Name

The Indoor Stadium is located close to Shanghai Stadium. The two facilities have very similar names in Chinese – the Indoor Stadium is literally called a "Sports Hall" (体育馆) while the Shanghai Stadium is called a "Sports Field" (体育场) – while in English their names differ only by the addition of "Indoor". This has been a source of confusion, especially after the opening of Shanghai Metro Line 4 with adjacent stations of these names.

When serving as a concert venue, it is often referred to as Shanghai Grand Stage (Shanghai Gymnasium) (Chinese: 上海大舞台). It is also the venue for the annual Shanghai Masters snooker championship, a major event on the international snooker calendar.
