+100%-

AIZAWL, JULY 15: Responding to mockeries in social media on his elevated football field project, Mizoram Sports Minister and football enthusiast Robert Romawia Royte has reiterated that it is “very much possible”.
“Elevated football field is nothing new, we have seen it in different parts of the world,” Royte said while addressing party workers at MNF office Hnam Run here recently.
According to the Sports Minister, elevated football field will be constructed on Zarkawt field, which is presently dusty in dry season and muddy in rainy season.
“The natural ground, which cannot be used for professional football will be utilised for parking, offices, water tanks, etc. We will have elevated football field on top of that which will be covered with astro turf,” he said.
Royte added that the Centre has approved in principle the proposal for construction of elevated football ground in Aizawl, which will be the first of its kind in the Northeastern region.
“On behalf of sporting fraternity, I express our gratitude to Chief Minister Zoramthanga , Deputy Chief Minister Tawnluia and Union Ministry of Housing & Urban Affairs for their logistic help and positive decision at their respective levels,” Royte said. (Courtesy: AT)
