As the saying goes, “out with old and in with new”, it’s time to bid farewell to one of Klang Valley’s iconic infrastructure. It was just confirmed that Shah Alam Stadium and Malawati Stadium are set to be demolished as plans for a new complex is in motion.
Shah Alam Stadium & Malawati Stadium To Be Demolished
Recently announced by the Selangor government, it has been decided that a new sports complex will be built. Existing structures would have to be torn down to resolve the issue of flash floods in the stadium. The new state-of-the-art complex will set to feature an open stadium that can be converted for indoor use, a public park, and other recreational facilities.
The new multi-use stadium will be converted for indoor or outdoor use with a movable pitch. Besides that, it will be able to accommodate between 35,000 and 45,000 spectators. It will even be football-focused and aims to obtain FIFA certification to be an international tournament stadium.
Aside from that, the proposal includes development outside the stadium with wide walkways, open green areas, covered access to different modes of transportation, retail space, as well as other sports and multi-use facilities
Back in July, Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said the project’s cost would be capped at RM787mil through a public-private partnership. It was also mentioned that time that a public display will be held this year to give the public a better understanding of the proposed development. You can also email your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org for a one-month period.
The exact date for the demolition of both the Shah Alam Stadium and the Malawati Indoor Stadium has yet to be announced.
