Stadium bidding heats up in Sunsari

And you thought the Olympic Games host city bidding was a competitive affair. Three cities in Sunsari district, Dharan, Inaruwa and Itahari are fighting tooth and nail to land a multi-use stadium which has been promised to the district by the central government. For once I welcome all the political activity we are seeing related to this sports related issue.

Let us hope the fierce lobbying that we are seeing in Sunsari district and the headlines it is making will help highlight the importance of sporting facilities. Nepal's municipalities desperately need more recreational and sporting facilities.
