PSC assures Team Pilipinas that RMSC, PhilSports will be fully operational

The Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) is now in full swing preparing the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex (RMSC) and PhilSports Complex to make it fully operational this year as the main training venues of the national team.

PSC Chairman Noli Eala said the agency is “full steam ahead” in ensuring that the agency delivers services to the national team and grassroots partners, including preparing its facilities for training and competitions. The sports chief said, “We are excited to see the national athletes back in training in these facilities.”

Repairs and rehabilitation are currently being conducted in RMSC’s two major facilities – the Rizal Memorial Coliseum (RMC) and Ninoy Aquino Stadium (NAS) after serving as government quarantine facilities and medical centers for COVID-19 patients in 2020. The Armed Forces of the Philippines returned control of the facilities last July 19.

The RMSC Baseball and Softball Field, Tennis Center, Swimming and Diving Pool, Wushu and Wrestling Gyms, Billiards and Judo Hall are currently being used by the members of the national team for their training. The newly constructed Squash Center is now also open for national athletes

The Track and Football Stadium which hosted the AFF Women’s Championship 2022 last July, is currently hosting the games of Philippine Football Federation-sanctioned Philippine Football League which will run until October.

Other facilities, including RMC, Badminton Hall, and Table Tennis Center, are also being prepared and shall undergo inspection and general cleaning activity to fully operate again. Only NAS will remain temporarily closed until September 30 this year.
