THE Rejang Park Volleyball Stadium in Sibu will be the first in the country to be equipped with an LED panel screen.

“The screen, which is 6.4m wide and 3.538m high, can broadcast matches live.

“This screen will provide a better experience for spectators,” said Bukit Assek assemblyman Joseph Chieng.

“It will be the first volleyball stadium in Malaysia equipped with such facilities, and I hope residents of Sibu will support our Sarawak team not only in volleyball but also in badminton and football,” Chieng said.

He said the cost for the screen, at RM50,000, would be drawn from his minor rural project (MRP) grant.

According to Chieng, the installation of the screen will be done before the Malaysia Games (Sukma), which Sarawak is playing host to from Aug 17 to 24.

He was speaking to reporters after presenting the funds for the project.

Chieng said that the Sarawak men’s and women’s volleyball teams for Sukma have been training hard and are targeting to win the gold medal.

“The teams are not only training in Malaysia but also abroad in countries such as Taiwan and Thailand.”

Sibu Volleyball Association chairman Datuk Moh Wung Ming said that the state team will compete in two more tournaments to fine-tune their preparations. ― By ANDY CHUA
