JOHOR BAHRU, May 4 -- The Johor state government through the State Sports Council (MSNJ) has allocated RM6.4 million a year for maintenance of facilities and venues of the SUKMA Games in the state.
MSNJ director Nor Syazlan Abd Razak said this was to prevent damage to the facilities and venues concerned, which were not used due to the implementation of the the Movement Control Order (MCO).
“We always ensure maintenance of stadiums, other venues and sports facilities so they remain in good condition and can still be used when SUKMA is held,” he told reporters after a dialogue on the Johor Sports Master Plan 2030 here yesterday.
Also present was State Tourism, Youth and Sports Committee chairman Datuk Onn Hafiz Ghazi.
Meanwhile, Onn said the Johor State Economic Planning Division (BPENJ) was in the process of tabling the proposal paper on the setting up of a combat center to the state government.
“The Combat Center will serve as a venue for training and competition for combat sports,” he said, adding that the state government had allocated RM4.5 million for the purpose.
