Hannah: No need to build new stadiums for now

PETALING JAYA: The Youth and Sports Ministry have no plans to build a new stadium which will eventually become a problematic project especially if it is going to be difficult to maintain the facilities in the first place.

Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh, in pointing out the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil as an example, said the venue often faced constraints involving overlapping events lately but that was not a reason to construct a new venue.
