The two sweeping crescent-shaped roofs, a three-dimensional star is mounted atop the smaller roof, were supposed to project the culture of Terengganu state.

The crescent shaped roof structure the larger of which recently collapsed, covered the main grandstand and the royal box (west stand), consisted of a column less steel space-framed system, externally supported by vertical and angled reinforced concrete rectangular beam columns on the outer eaves of the lower rim of the roof.

The roof covering was made from metal sheets with a glass skylight in the shape of a star on the smaller roof of the east stand.

Floodlights were placed at the edges of the space-framed roofing.
