STADIUMS, Turf Club and Sports Center in Malaysia

15 bid for STC‘s relocation
Job valued at RM500-RM600 mil, new turf club to be in the north along North-South Highway

By Yap Lih Huey, 10.57am


Some 15 major property players are eyeing a RM500 million to RM600 million contract to relocate and build the new Selangor Turf Club (STC) premises outside of Kuala Lumpur.

STC deputy chairman Datuk Richard Cham says the developers have submitted their proposals for the relocation, design and construction of the new premises since tenders were called in November.


Among the developers are Hong Leong Properties Bhd, Lion Land Bhd, SP Setia Bhd, Gamuda Bhd, Talam Corporation Bhd and MK Land Holdings Bhd.

The others include Arab-Malaysian Property Trust Management Bhd, Mah Sing Group Bhd, Berjaya Land Bhd and Tan & Tan Developments Bhd.

The turf club, which is currently located in Sungai Besi, will be relocated because of traffic congestion in the area and unsuitability of the land.

Cham tells FinancialDaily that the new site for the STC premises should ideally be located in the northern region along the North-South Highway.


It is learnt that there are three prominent developers that own large land banks in the northern area — Talam, Berjaya and Land & General Bhd with 4,000 acres, 16,400 acres and 2,700 acres respectively.

STC has been located on a tin mining land with a 90-year lease in Sungai Besi since 1993 when it moved from Jalan Ampang. Cham says STC wants to relocate to a freehold land.

The previous location at Jalan Ampang is now occupied by the Petronas Twin Towers, a hotel, retail and residential, recreational and entertainment facilities.

The Jalan Ampang land was bought by businessman T Ananda Krishnan.

“We will only appoint one developer to undertake STC’s relocation plan.

“It is practical to let one developer do it rather than appoint too many players for this project,” Cham says.

“The new STC would need a minimum of 600 acres of land, which would come from the appointed developer’s land bank,” he added.

“If there’s excess of land after developing the new STC, the developer can build a golf course or a sports complex around the new STC.

“It’s totally up to the developer to decide what they want to do with the excess land,” says Cham.

Cham cites traffic congestion and the sunken land in its current premises to be major factors to relocate.

“We received a lot of complaints from the jockeys. During the rainy seasons, the tin mining land is dangerous for the jockeys,” he says.

“The current premise is too small for us to develop world-class facilities. We want STC to be a racing resort.

“We want to convert horse racing into a tourism sport. This is in line with the government policy to promote equestrian sports,” Cham says.


On Nov 24, STC placed an advertisement in a local newspaper calling for tenders on the proposed relocation from its current premises.

The closing date for developers to submit tenders has since been extended from Dec 23, 2003 to Jan 31, 2004.

Once the tender closes, STC would appoint a consulting company to look into the proposals for the new turf club.

“It would take us a few months to decide. We will also have to call for an extraordinary general meeting by March or April 2004 to get majority approval (on the relocation plans) from our club members,” Cham says.

“So far, feedback from our members have been positive,” he adds.
Under its club constitution, each member would get a 10,000 sq ft plot of land in the new STC site. STC has about 600 members.

Membership into STC is by invitation from its committee members.
In 2003, STC recorded RM800 million in total bets. Cham forecasts bets for next year will see a 10% increase to RM880 million due to a more favourable economic condition.

In 2002, total bets stood at RM500 million. STC takes 9.2% from the total bets.

It is learnt that based on total bets, STC contributed RM55 million and RM88 million in 2002 and 2003 to the government's revenue.

Sungai Besi? Is it visible from NS-highway? The only things I seem to notice at Sg Besi are that old airstrip and of course the Mines and Palace of the Golden Horses.

Anyway, I'm more interested to know what's gonna spring up once the the Turf Club's moved out. Its predecessor at Jln Ampang indeed has an illustrious successor in the KLCC!

BLand gets STC relocation job

Berjaya Land Bhd subsidiary Selat Makmur Sdn Bhd has been selected for a RM640 million job to relocate and build the new Selangor Turf Club (STC) premises, says an STC official.

The official, who declined to be named, tells FinancialDaily that Selat Makmur beat seven other major property developers to the job in a tender exercise. It proposes to relocate the club to Rawang, along the North-South Expressway.

STC has put up advertisement notices in newspapers on an impending EGM on March 31 to consider and approve Selat Makmur’s selection.

Pursuant to the advertisement, the club proposes to sell the existing land in Sungai Besi to Selat Makmur for RM640 million to be paid for in land, buildings and cash.

STC will get a 300ha land in Sungai Tinggi, Ulu Sungai district near Bukit Beruntung in Rawang, together with a “modern leading-edge racecourse of international standards with ancillary buildings” to be built by Selat Makmur at a cost of RM605 million.

In addition, STC will receive RM35 million cash, while each club member whose name appears on its register as at March 31 will get sub-divided vacant lots of about 10,000 sq ft of land in the new site.

“It seems that the members are in favour of the deal. The new location is ideal for traffic dispersal,” said an STC ordinary member when contacted yesterday. Furthermore, the vacant lot of 10,000 sq ft is seen as a great offer.

On Jan 2, FinancialDaily, quoting STC’s deputy chairman Datuk Richard Cham, reported on STC’s planned relocation to an area north of Kuala Lumpur, along the North-South Expressway.

About 15 major property players were said to be eyeing the contract. Among them are Hong Leong Properties Bhd, Talam Corporation Bhd, MK Land Holdings Bhd and Berjaya Land.

The existing site has to be relocated because of traffic congestion in the area and unsuitability of the land for horse racing.

STC has been located on a tin mining land with a 90-year lease in Sungai Besi since 1993 when it moved from its previous Jalan Ampang site.

The previous location at Jalan Ampang is now occupied by the Petronas Twin Towers, a hotel, retail and residential, recreational and entertainment facilities. The Jalan Ampang land was bought by businessman T Ananda Krishnan.

The current STC are located just opposite The Palace Of The Golden Horses.

I think the structure should be visible as it is quite tall........I am not really sure as I did not notice it most of the time cos I am always driving "D

Sultan of Selangor quizzes club over move

KLANG: The Sultan of Selangor has expressed displeasure over the reported plan to relocate the Selangor Turf Club (SLTC) from Sungai Besi, according to sources.

A palace official confirmed that three SLTC committee members were summoned to the palace for an explanation on the club?s move to Sungai Tinggi in Hulu Selangor.

The SLTC recently announced that among the reasons for shifting the racecourse was the traffic congestion in the vicinity on race days and the poor condition of the track, which sits on former mining land, during bad weather. .

At the club?s EGM in March, the ordinary members of the SLTC gave the go-ahead to move the club.

However, 27 members later signed a petition against the move and sought a court injunction to stop the relocation.

The injunction was dismissed and they have filed an appeal with the Court of Appeal.

The SLTC had announced that the Berjaya Land Bhd (BLand) had won the tender to build the new club in Sungai Tinggi.

BLand, through wholly-owned subsidiary Selat Makmur, beat 18 other developers in the open tender.

Selat Makmur will build a racecourse and ancillary buildings on the land at a cost of RM605mil and buy the Sungai Besi land for RM640mil.

The SLTC committee members could not be reached for comment.

I believe the current Sultan is a very practical person so he must have his reasons. Maybe he just wanted to be briefed on the situation as the Selangor Sultanate had always had a keen interest in equestrain

Stadiums of Malaysia

Shah Alam stadium
What's great! the first that I can see for overviews.Not yet to start for Bukit jalil national stadium.


The Shah Alam main stadium is built of pre-cast post-tensioned concrete in which the seating bleachers double as structural spans. The maximum structural span is 80 meters. The stadium meets all Olympic standards and provides 80,000 seats and another 5,000 standing spaces. Three quarters of the seats are protected from weather by the space frame supported polymer roof. The roof is opaque to minimise the lighting contrasts for daytime television transmission.

The highest safety and security standards for crowd control were followed, with huge ramps for quick evacuation and a moat between the crowd and the playing field. Athletes, officials and VIPs have separate access and facilities at the lower levels. The latest intelligent facilities for the mass media and telecommunications made the stadium the most technically sophisticated in South East Asia.

Adjacent to the Main Stadium, the Olympic standard Indoor Stadium accommodates sports such as badminton and gymnastics. A seating capacity of 12,000 in four galleries overlooks the square arena. Towers for media coverage at each corner also anchor the roof. The green copper dome relates to the arcs of staircase/ramps outside the building, and the curves of the larger outdoor stadium.

No More Mega Sport Complexs

No More Mega Sports Complexes, Says Azalina


KOTA KINABALU, Aug 2 (Bernama) -- The government will stop building mega sports complexes and instead focus on providing small and cheap community sports complexes to encourage mass participation said Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Azalina Othman.

According to Azalina, there are enough mega sports complexes in the country to cater for the needs of the sporting entity.

The government does not want to be burdened with the huge expenditure's incurred for maintaining such complexes as the money can be used for other deserving purposes, she said.

"The public will certainly be angry with the government for spending large sums of tax payers money on such expensive complexes which are not utilised regularly compared to infrastructure for health services or hospitals.

"Furthermore, costs of maintaining these big complexes is very high while replacing the track, grass, repairing toilets could also incur huge costs," she said after a dialogue session with 300 sports leaders in Sabah.

She said in contrary to an earlier statement that community sports complexes would be built in every Parliamentary constituency, the government has now decided that each state constituency should have one.

"For a start, the government has decided that the first of such complexes be built in constituencies of Chief Ministers and Menteris Besar as they will become exemplary structures for the others," she said.

From The EDGE

19-07-2004: BLand signs STC's RM650m deal

Berjaya Land Bhd (BLand) unit Selat Makmur Sdn Bhd (SMSB) has entered into a conditional sale and purchase agreement with Selangor Turf Club (STC) to acquire buildings and three parcels of leasehold land measuring 98.7 ha in Sungai Besi for RM640 million.

In a statement on July 19, BLand said SMSB would pay RM35 million in cash and transfer 302.4ha of freehold land together with a new racecourse and other amenities in Sungai Tinggi worth RM605 million within 33 months to STC.

For that purpose, SMSB is acquiring the 302.4ha land from Berjaya Group Bhd's (BGroup) wholly-owned subsidiary BerjayaCity Sdn Bhd (BCSB) for RM605 million cash. It also proposed to appoint BCSB as the turnkey contractor for the new turf club facility.

BGroup expected to earn a gross gain of at least RM140 million from the transaction. It will use the RM605 million proceeds to partly reduce borrowings, which totalled RM3.69 billion as at April 30, 2004.
