THE Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) and Bases Conversion and Development AUthority (BCDA) are coordinating with the Southeast Asian Games committee in preparation for next year’s international athletic meet which will be held in the country from November 30 to December 10.
This was learned from SBMA Administrator Wilma “Amy” Eisma during a meeting with members of the Pampanga Press Club at the Park Inn by Radisson Clark on Tuesday, October 16.
“We are now working very closely with the SEA Games committee,” she said.
Eisma said some of the sports events including triathlon, duathlon, sailing, beach volleyball, sepak takraw, taekwondo, weightlifting, Muay Thai, chess, table tennis and others will be held in Subic.
With the help of the national government, SBMA has implemented a P50 million project for the rehabilitation of support facilities and road networks which will be used in the 2019 SEA Games, according to the official.
Subic has been known as sports tourism destination, Eisma added. “The very recent sports event is the Spartan obstacle course race.”
Half of the SEA Games categories will be held in New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac, she said.
