MUAR: The 20th Malaysia Games (Sukma) in Johor will likely be held in four districts only, said Mentri Besar Datuk Osman Sapian.
He said the four districts would be Johor Baru, Muar, Batu Pahat and Kota Tinggi.
Osman said besides that, upgrading works and construction of sports venues for the Games that would be held in 2020 had begun.
“The state government has also decided to build a 12.14ha velodrome at a cost of about RM50mil in Lima Kedai, Gelang Patah,” he told reporters after launching the state-level National Sports Day at the Pagoh Higher Education Hub here. Meanwhile, in Johor Baru, Osman said the Serlahkan Kehebatan 10 event which entered its seventh year could serve as a platform to boost the state’s motorsports industry.
The event was also in line with the Johor Sustainable Development Plan 2019-2030 to support the idealistic aspirations of young people, he said. — Bernama
