(8/10/2014) reports that in the near future Bali will own an international sports stadium to be built on a 7-hectare lot at a cost of Rp. 1 trillion (US$87 million).

The provincial assistant in charge of the economy and development, I Ketut Wija, said on Saturday, August 9, 2014: “The international standard stadium will be located near the Bali Pecatu Graha in the Badung regency on land owned by the provincial government of Bali.”

Wija told the press that the 7-hectare site would be home to a football stadium and another closed sports facility that could also be used for sports, tourism, culture and exhibition activities.

Wija said many international sporting clubs have expressed a desire to hold friendly matches in Bali that have been declined by the province due to the lack of a suitable sporting venue.

The province is reportedly sending a team to Palembang and Riau to have a closer look at new international stadiums constructed in those locations.
Design work on the new stadium has begun with Wija projecting that by 2015 the new stadium may be open for events.

The government is looking for an investor from the private sector to build the venue with the land representing the government’s portion of what is hope will become a public-private joint venture. Wija says several investors have approached the province to participate in the stadium project.

The province is also considering building an aquatic sports venue on Jalan By Pass Ngurah Rai in Denpasar.
