ATHLETIC SEA GAMES BE HELD AT NIGHT

KUALA LUMPUR- Track and field event of the 29th SEA Games next year will be held in the afternoon and evening to attract more spectators.

Manager 2017 SEA Games Sports Secretary, M. Iyar said the changes were necessary to attract more spectators to the stadium, something that failed to do in recent years.

Previously, track and field is divided into two sessions, morning and afternoon. We wanted a larger number of spectators and that’s why we try to do in the evening. 

There are two sessions, the first session starting at 3 pm and 8 pm the second session began and ended 10.30 pm.

“The event is more important to be held in the late afternoon. Usually the number of viewers is lower on weekdays while sports fans will choose the sports to be held concurrently in the afternoon.

“So, we hope that people will come to watch track and field after work hours,” he said.

Track and field is expected to be held from August 22 to 26 at the National Stadium, Bukit Jalil, here.
