The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) vowed to leave no stone unturned in coming up with a successful hosting of the 30th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.
PSC chairman William “Butch” Ramirez said time is running out and the government would have to step in to make sure that the country would have a smooth and trouble-free hosting of the prestigious 11-nation tournament set from 30 November to 11 December at the New Clark City in Tarlac.
With the Philippine Southeast Asian Games Organizing Committee running the show, concerns were raised over the country’s SEA Games preparation.
A handful of national sports associations questioned the delays in the construction of venues and facilities and purchase of equipment with barely two months left before the opening ceremonies.
But now that the PSC has taken over, Ramirez assured that they would do everything to make sure that there won’t be any lapses in the hosting preparations.
“If there are lapses, the PSC will come in to fill the gaps,” said Ramirez, who was also appointed by the Philippine Olympic Committee to serve as chief of mission to the biennial meet.
