The Finance Committee of Hong Kong’s Legislative Council has approved HK$62.7m (US$8.1m) in pre-construction funds for the planned Kai Tak Multi-purpose Sports Complex.

According to a report in the South China Morning Post, the funds will be used for consultancy studies on technical and quantity surveying, ground investigation and topographic and tree surveys, before actual construction can go ahead.

First proposed in 2004, the Hong Kong Government plans to use around 8% of the former site of the administrative region’s former airport for a planned 50,000-seat sports stadium with a retractable roof, 5,000-seat sports ground and 4,000-seat indoor sports centre.

Having previously sought private funding for what will be the city’s biggest sports complex, the Government is likely to have to meet the entire cost of the HK$23bn (US$2.9bn) development.

Construction of the much-delayed project could begin in two years’ time, with a 2020 completion date mooted.

Meanwhile, many fear that the development of the Singapore Sports Hub – the host venue for our must-attend Stadia & Arena Asia Pacific 2015 conference & trade show – has seen Singapore overtake Hong Kong as a venue for major sporting events and fixtures in East Asia.
