After more than five months of repair and reinstalment works, the HFC Bank Stadium tracks were officially reopened by Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka yesterday.

“It is indeed a pleasure of mine to be reopening the newly-refurbished tracks of the HFC Bank Stadium in Suva,” he said.

“The HFC Bank Stadium holds a special place in the hearts of many including mine and has been the venue for countless memorable and historical sporting events over the years.”

The tracks were supposed to be opened to the public last week but were delayed because of unfavourable weather conditions in the Capital City.

“Today we not only celebrate the opening of the tracks, but everyone who has been part of making this refurbished track a reality,” Rabuka said.

“The newly-refurbished track is a testament to the Government’s commitment to investing in sports in the country and a healthy lifestyle for all our citizens.

“These tracks with provide our athletes with world-class facilities to train and compete and will undoubtedly attract top talent from all around the country.”

Meanwhile, the entire refurbishing process of the tracks at the stadium cost around $2 million since work started in September last year.
