I have decided to sponsor the cost for a new pitch as a gift to the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. It will be the Zeon Zoysia type grass, like at Johor Darul Ta’zim FC’s Sultan Ibrahim Stadium.
I have instructed the JDT management to assist the Malaysia Stadium Corporation in ensuring the National Stadium has a quality pitch fit for international football.
However, I would like to request the stadium authorities to ensure the pitch is well maintained and any non-sporting use of the pitch should only be carried out if proper measures are in place to ensure the pitch is not damaged.
