MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Sports Commission yesterday bared its plan to convert the old track and field oval at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex into a football field even as it signified its intention to tap a private institution to co-finance the project.
“The plan is to turn the Rizal Memorial Track and Field Oval into a football stadium and we’re going to pursue that,” said Philippine Sports Commission chair Harry Angping.
“It’s just matter of having a budget and finding probably a private partner to help co-finance it,” he said.
Angping, in fact, said they might explore the possibility of forging a partnership with La Salle in making the plan for the construction of a state-of-the-art football field, which could also host several international events.
