The Menteri Besar of Selangor, Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari, has said that the Shah Alam stadium which many of us know and have fond memories of will most probably be demolished by the end of the year.
According to a BERNAMA report, Amirudin says that the stadium will be demolished by early October and replaced by Kompleks Stadium Shah Alam (KSSA).
“The demolishment will begin this yeat. If not by the end of October then by early November. That’s our target.”
Other than that, their target is also to complete KSSA by 2026.
The state government has submitted the necessary documents for the demolition of the stadium since June. The MB adds that the Shah Alam stadium is a huge structure and that there are many processes that need to be overseen in a detailed manner.
It is said that there are many structural problems with the current Shah Alam stadium such as problems in the changing room, electrical supply, and spectator seats. There were also 3 instances where it was flooded: 2006, 2015 and 2021.
The new KSSA will have a capacity of 35,000 to 45,000 spectators and can be accessed via LRT 3 which will be within walking distance, reports BERNAMA.
There will also be multiple components to it: a stadium, training stadium, parks and fields to accommodate the needs of the public. A rough sketch of KSSA is shown in the MB’s 2022 tweet.
