PETALING JAYA: A proposal to allow contact sports training will be discussed at a special ministerial meeting next week, says Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

The Senior Minister (Security) said the government has heard the pleas from the contact sports industry players including the football organisation to allow contact sports to reopen.

As such, Ismail said Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican will present the proposal to allow contact sports training such as football at the special ministerial meeting.

"The decision to allow contact sports to resume will depend on the advice of the National Security Council (NSC) and the Health Ministry," he said this during his daily briefing on Friday (July 3).
