Posted by samakomlao Monday, June 29, 2009

The SEA Games organising committee will start checks on the electrical system at the sports complex from July 15.

The committee and national sports federations will inspect the electrical system after work to bring it up to international standards is complete. Work began on the system in April this year.

The sports complex consists of the National Football Stadium, tennis courts, archery fields, swimming pool, shooting fields and indoor courts which will host the volleyball and badminton events.

Manager of the SEA Games Construction Project, Mr Khiengkham Phoutchanhthavong, said the sports complex will have a high-quality electrical system in place before the games begin.

The committee will soon designate a manager to be responsible for running operations at the football stadium and indoor courts during the games.

Chinese technicians on Saturday tested the scoreboard's electrical system, which has been manufactured in China .

On the same day, members of the National Assembly and the Lao National Sports Committee (LNSC) visited the complex to monitor construction progress.

LNSC Vice President, Mr Somphou Phongsa, said the football stadium and indoor courts are of high standard and have been surfaced with the finest imported materials.

LNSC and NA members also visited athletes' accommodation at the National University of Laos.

The Lao Badminton Federation will host the Lao International Challenge at the indoor courts at the end of July in a trial run of the facilities.

Officials are busy maintaining and preparing facilities at the football stadium and other arenas in the lead-up to the games.
