PSC preps RMSC, PhilSports for Team Philippines training venues

RIZAL Memorial Sports Complex — RAMON F VELASQUEZ

THE PHILIPPINE Sports Commission (PSC) is now in full swing preparing the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex (RMSC) and PhilSports Complex to make it 100% operational this year as the main training venues of the national team.

PSC Chairman Noli Eala said the agency is “full steam ahead” in ensuring that the agency delivers services to the national team and grassroots partners, including preparing its facilities for training and competitions. The sports chief said, “we are excited to see the national athletes back in training in these facilities.”

Repairs and rehabilitation are currently being conducted in RMSC’s two major facilities — the Rizal Memorial Coliseum (RMC) and Ninoy Aquino Stadium (NAS) after serving as government quarantine facilities and medical centers for COVID-19 patients in 2020. The Armed Forces of the Philippines returned control of the facilities last July 19.

The RMSC Baseball and Softball Field, Tennis Center, Swimming and Diving Pool, Wushu and Wrestling Gyms, Billiards and Judo Hall are currently being used by the members of the national team for their training. The newly constructed Squash Center is now also open for national athletes.

The Track and Football Stadium which hosted the AFF Women’s Championship 2022 last July, is currently hosting the games of Philippine Football Federation-sanctioned Philippine Football League which will run until October.

Other facilities, including RMC, Badminton Hall, and Table Tennis Center, are also being prepared and shall undergo inspection and general cleaning activity to fully operate again. Only NAS will remain temporarily closed until September 30 this year.

The PhilSports’ Multi-Purpose Arena in Pasig City was reverted to the PSC by the Philippine National Police last June.

The Philsports Complex Fencing Hall, Swimming Pool, Track and Field Oval and Football Field, are now operational for the training of our national abled and para-athletes. Kurash and Karatedo teams will share training facilities at the 2nd floor of the Philsports PSC Dining Hall.

Currently, the members of the national track and field and fencing teams are billeted at the PhilSports dormitories.

Mr. Eala assured that health safety protocols are being observed in all facilities and will continue to be in place to protect the health of athletes.
