MB calls for public feedback on Shah Alam sports complex

SHAH ALAM, Oct 1 — Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari has invited the public to share their feedback on the Shah Alam Sports Complex (KSSA) project.

The Menteri Besar said that the project’s design proposal was presented in a briefing session yesterday.

“The design proposal was presented during the meeting today (yesterday). The public is welcome to share their feedback to [email protected].

“We will set up an exhibition to display the proposed prototype of the design,” he said on Twitter.

The briefing session was held between Menteri Besar Selangor (Incorporated), or MBI, and the Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB) at the Concorde Hotel, here yesterday.

Meanwhile, MRCB managing director Mohd Imran Mohamad Salim said the development of commercial sites and public facilities around the sports complex could bring in money for the maintenance of the stadium.

He said the money collected from rental payments could be used to cover the stadium’s estimated RM6 million annual maintenance cost.

“That is why we are redeveloping the facility using a multifunctional concept. It would be more of a commercial area that may also serve as a concert venue in addition to a sports arena.

“Through this income-generating concept, the state government would not have to bear the maintenance expenses,” he said during the briefing session. 

Also present was MBI chief executive officer Norita Mohd Sidek. 

The new sports complex will feature:

  • A stadium with a 35,000–45,000 seat capacity
  • 60 per cent of the complex area caters to sports activities
  • The design will take into account traffic issues, public transportation connectivity and to solve flood issues
  • An open stadium that could be converted into a closed stadium depending on events
  • 40 per cent of the complex area will be allocated for public recreational space
  • Public parks, recreational centres and a youth development hub will also be provided within the complex
