The forty year old National Stadium will be undergoing major upgrading works from this week.
The new stadium will be built to international standards, from the running tracks to the playing grounds.
Fiji Sports Council chairman Peter Mazey says the Government has budgeted $15 million to facilitate the project which is expected to be completed by March next year.
Mazey adds that some of the highlight features of the stadium will be a new electronic scoreboard, bigger light towers as well as big screens to show the events taking place.
The new stadium complex will also have a sitting capacity of 25,000 people, including new seats on the embankment.
The grass for the grounds will be imported from New Zealand.
