Brand-new Arena: Kelantan for SUKMA 2012…?

leave a comment »

Citing concerning long-awaited final showdown on yesterday for unforgiving defeat to Negri Sembilan, I was called to bring about factor contributing Kelantan to become giant killer in Malaysia League this season were their passionate and fanatic fans attending matches and money-no-problem management. Apart from fans factors, the fully-loaded of Sultan Muhammad-IV Stadium in every match triggering dissatisfaction among fanatics fans regarding conditions and comfort dwelling at this stadium. So, in order to fulfill fanatics fans’ hopes, the state government obtain some initiatives to build a sport arena pertaining brand-new stadium with high capacity to accommodate thousands of fans parallel with the development of Kelantan football in Malaysia League. But, my views was that, apart from development of the brand-new sport arena, what will Kelantanese deeply want to see outside the complex box..? Is that SUKMA?

For me, I definitely say YES! This is the exact time for Kelantan to organize SUKMA that we never host before, considering for factors must exist in organizing SUKMA was that with the brand-new sport facility and right to organize as a state in Peninsular Malaysia. SUKMA 2010 as all known belongs to Malacca for hosting most prestigious games tournament in Malaysia, SUKMA Games (Boone) after Terengganu passed it baton last 2008. The Boone history begun on 1986 when Kuala Lumpur was first hosting this tournament that has been producing many athletes to the country. Apart from that, on research that I had done shown from it was first introduced in the year 1986, Kelantan never offering for bidding to host Boone Games because of sport capacity not achieving the standard to organize big events such as Boone, where the past host were the established-state with strong financial power that able to build sport complex the like of Kuala Lumpur (1986 & 1988), Sarawak (1990), Johor (1992), Perak (1994), Pahang (1996), Selangor (1998), Penang (2000), Sabah (2002), Negri Sembilan (2004), Kedah (2006), Terengganu (2008) and newly-crown host Malacca (2010).

For records, Kelantan and Perlis respectively never hosting this Boone Games because of state governments’ requirement to host the Boone depending on the financial budget to built standardized sports complex. In retrospective of Kelantan, for years, has produces a numbers of national-level athletes and young talents in every gaming profession. But, sadly we never create some initiative in organizing this multi-sport competition because the lack of first class sports amenities and facilities. Perhaps, by completing new standardized sport complex in new-developed area in Tunjung on 2012 make it worthy by organizing this SUKMA Games on 2012 as a new-host. The new sport complex consisting of indoor and outdoor arena, except aquatic center for swimming and synchronize diving. I hopes that OneMalaysia could understand this restriction…
