SHAH ALAM, Nov 28 — More activities can be expected to be done under the sports development programme in Selangor next year with the RM7 million funds.
Selangor National Sports Council executive director Mohamad Nizam Marjugi said the allocation, which was announced during the tabling of the 2023 Selangor Budget last Friday, will be utilised for training programmes, allowances and sports equipment.
According to Mohamad Nizam, the fund will also be utilised by 50 sports associations in the state to pay for entry fees for competitions at all levels, from local to national.
“We would like to thank the Selangor government under the leadership of Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Amirudin Shari who has announced some allocation to help develop sports activities in the state.
“Hopefully we may discover more athletes who can compete at the highest level, especially to help Selangor improve our position in the Malaysia Games (Sukma) in the future,” he said.
On November 25, Amirudin announced that the sports development programme in Selangor will be continued with a total allocation of RM7 million.
