The project of the facility for gymnastics in the Marsa Sports Complex is moving at a fast pace and when completed it will be another intensive work that is being done in this Complex, to be transformed into a sports hub.
“It is part of our vision to make this Complex a sports hub, which includes facilities for various sports disciplines and of the best level,” said the Minister for Education, Sport, Youth, Research and Innovation Clifton Grima during a visit to the work being done. He went on to say that, “This is a vision that we are fulfilling and through which we are aiming for our country to have sports facilities of international standards that serve as a foundation for a sports industry that also attracts investment to our country.”
This is another project from a list of sports infrastructure projects that are being carried out around the islands, in gymnastics facilities that not only include a hall for this sports discipline, but a complex that will also have suitable places for associations and sports associations have offices where they meet and manage their work. The Complex will have a hall that can accommodate around 300 spectators, a facility for artistic gymnastics; and ancillary facilities including board room, changing rooms and showers.
Both this project, with an investment of €5 million, and also others that are currently being carried out around the country are part of an ambitious vision that is being carried out, that of continuing to invest in sports facilities accessible to all and that through theirs is enjoyed by anyone who in one way or another practices some physical activity, from people who do basic training to professional athletes whose sport is their passion and career.
A few weeks ago another project was inaugurated in the Marsa Complex, the development and renovation of the Matthew Micallef St John Athletics Stadium with an investment of €2.5 million, a project that started a year ago and was completed in record time and is part of an investment of €9 million through which the Marsa Sports Complex is being changed to one of the highest level.
The investment being made is crucial for our country to take the next step in sport.
It is the aim of the government to continue to carry out together with all the parties in the sector so that even this sports sector is one that offers every possible opportunity for athletes and sportsmen so that they too reach their dreams and aspirations.
