Sports training center in Clark closer to reality
The proposed national training center for Filipino athletes in Clark, Pampanga could soon become a reality.
Philippine Sports Commission executive director Guillermo Iroy said the Clark International Airport Corporation would decide in its board meeting Tuesday if the 50-hectare complex would push through in partnership with the PSC.
Once the CIAC board headed by its president and CEO Emigdio P. Tanjuatco III agrees, Iroy said a contract signing between the government sports agency and the airport authority would immediately ensue.
“If we get the CIAC’s approval, the contract signing would probably held next week at the earliest,” said Iroy.
He explained the agreement would be followed by the traditional ground-breaking and the mobilization of resources for the planning, subdivision and basic layout of roads, water and electricity, among others.
PSC chair Richie Garcia earlier said building the infrastructure in the complex would take only six months using pre-fabricated materials.
