Stadium Shah Alam To Undergo RM787mil Refurbishment

For years now, Stadium Shah Alam has been plagued with structural issues due to a lack of proper maintenance, so much so that the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) deemed the iconic landmark unsafe, forcing their home team, Selangor FC to move out for this season's Super League. Amidst public uproar of an initial proposal to demolish the stadium - as revealed by Selangor MB Amirudin Shari - local football fans can breathe a sigh of relief now, as the state govt has announced a public-private partnership with Malaysian Resources Corporation Berhad (MRCB) to refurbish & enhance the historic sporting site.

With costs to the tune of RM787mil, Stadium Shah Alam and its neighbouring sporting complexes - namely Stadium Melawati - are set for a new lease of life, to restore the glory days of what was once the biggest stadium in Southeast Asia. Padangbola Sepak's Khalilul Rahman joins us on the program as we ponder on the future of the stadium.
