Umagang Kay Ganda host Anthony Taberna, an active member of Iglesia Ni Cristo, reporting live from the Philippine Arena:
The floor area of the arena is 99,000 square meters, which is more than three times the size of the Araneta Coliseum, and bigger than that of the Mall of Asia Arena with only a floor area of 64,085 square meters.
No less than President Benigno Aquino III and Vice President Jejomar Binay led the inauguration of the Philippine Arena. President Aquino and INC Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo were the ones who unveiled the marker in front of the arena.
