PLANS are afoot to develop comprehensive sporting facilities in Sibu’s Kemuyang housing area.

Once completed, youths in the area will have a place to indulge in their favourite sports without having to travel 24km to the nearest facilities in the town.

The facilities to be built include a hockey field, football field and a multipurpose hall for sepak takraw and basketball.

“The most important facility is the construction of the hockey field.

“This will be the first hockey field in the central zone. Until now, there are only two hockey fields in Kuching and nowhere else in Sarawak,” said Nangka assemblyman Datuk Dr Annuar Rapaee.

Speaking at the pre-launch of the Kemuyang football field, he said the proposed hockey field was undergoing the tender process.

He said the football field would be the second in the Nangka constituency, with adequate lighting for night matches.

“This field uses real grass compared to the synthetic field in Permai.

“I will also try to add two more football fields in the Nangka constituency.

“I have identified the locations but am still negotiating to acquire the land,” said Annuar.

In conjunction with the pre-launch of the field, a Four Corners League match was held.

The friendly matches involved fan clubs of English Premier League teams Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.
