* Race Course in Sri Lankan capital to be converted into an international level rugby ground
Sun, Sep 25, 2011, 11:02 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 25, Colombo: The Sri Lankan government is considering to convert the Race Course on Reid Avenue in Colombo into an international rugby ground.

The Urban Development Authority (UDA) under the Defence Ministry is currently preparing the ground and is scheduled to complete the work in about eight months.

A UDA official has been quoted in the media saying that once completed, the ground could be used for international rugby matches.

The premise is to be equipped with the latest facilities for international rugby, including a state-of-the art gymnasium, changing rooms and media rooms, and a jogging track encircling the grounds.

However, the original Race Course structures are to be preserved and renovated, while boundary walls will be pulled down to give a good view of fine the colonial architecture, the UDA said.
