700 Year Anniversary Stadium to receive
a face-lift and refurbishing
10 million baht is to be spent on the 700 Year Anniversary
stadium to replace damaged equipment and rest room repairs and painting.
The stimulus for this appears to have been a visit by the
PM’s sister Yaowapa Wongsawas, who is also the deputy leader of the Thai Rak
Thai party, in concert with two Chiang Mai members of parliament, Pakorn
Buranuprakorn and Boonsong Teriyaphirom.
The director of the Sport Authority of Thailand, Northern
Office, Rujira Premmanont, will thoroughly check the condition of the restrooms
and assess other equipment for repair and improvement.
Rujira estimates that the improvements, which will include
painting, will cost less than 10 million baht. The improvements will start in
early January 2005.
