SINGAPORE - Under the Sports Facilities Master Plan (SFMP), which is part of the Vision 2030 blueprint for sports in Singapore, facilities will be organised into four tiers to cater to sporting needs at national, regional, town and neighbourhood levels.
Singapore Sports Hub, which boasts world-class facilities such as a 55,000-capacity National Stadium, a 6,000-capacity indoor aquatic centre, a 3,000-seater indoor arena and a water sports centre featuring dragon boating, kayaking and canoeing in the Kallang Basin.
The five regional sports centres will serve as main focal points for sports competitions, leagues and events by 2030.
These centres will boast better facilities, LED screens for better spectator experience and incorporate lifestyle and recreational amenities.
Town sports and recreation centres will provide vibrant sporting and recreational spaces for residents in HDB towns.
Current standalone facilities will be redeveloped into town play fields or wet play fields.
New playing spaces will be developed in HDB neighbourhoods under the Sports-in-Precinct programme. In addition, more school facilities will be made available to the public.
