Shah Alam Stadium issue: KBS ready to help Sim

KUALA LUMPUR The Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) via the Malaysian Stadium Corporation is ready to provide guidance and advice regarding the issue of the damaged roof at Shah Alam Stadium which poses a possible threat to the safety of the audience.

Its Deputy Minister Steven Sim Chee Keong said the ministry was also open to helping any authorities handling government stadiums.

Of course PSM is the main body in charge of the stadium, but we (KBS) are always ready to assist those managing government stadiums, regardless if they are from the local authorities or the federal government,” he said when met after opening the Improving Work Opportunities for Young People in the Commonwealth (I WORK) National Forum.

At the 2020 Selangor Asia Challenge (SAC) Championship last month, the condition of the Shah Alam Stadium came into the limelight, especially due to a leak in the roof, with some debris also falling onto the seating area.

Bernama had previously reported that Selangor faced the risk of not being able to play at the Shah Alam Stadium after the initial inspection by the MFL found that there were certain aspects of the facility that did not meet M League standards
