Transfer of lights to Panaad
awaits DepEd final approval
The floodlights at the Paglaum Sports Complex will be transferred as soon as Department of Education Secretary Armin Luistro approves the request submitted to his office by the provincial government.
Former Bacolod City congressman Monico Puentevella, who presently serves as Philippine Olympic Committee chairman, said the lights are needed for the Asian Football Confederation Challenge Cup game scheduled on Feb. 9, 2011 at the Panaad Stadium in Brgy. Mansilingan, Bacolod City.
Puentevella said a team from the AFC will be in Bacolod on January 15 to inspect the Panaad venue and assess its suitability to host the game.
