Fri, Jan 3, 2014, 11:04 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Jan 03, Colombo: Sri Lanka Ministry of Sports has taken steps to bring all the offices related to sports under one roof.

Accordingly, all the offices of the Sports Development Department are to be moved to the four-story building at the Colombo Race Course.

The Ministry has planned to provide facilities to the sports administration bodies in the old Sports Development Department building in the Torrington Square.

Meanwhile, the Ministry has also taken steps to revise the constitutions of 25 sports associations affiliated to the National Olympic Committee (NOC). The process will restructure these sports associations in line with the provisions of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

Following a meeting between Minister Aluthgamage along with the officials of NOC and the IOC officials in November in Lausanne, Sri Lanka agreed to revise the 1973 sports law within nine months and to review the specific government regulations derived from the sports law within six months in order to make them compatible with the basic principles which govern the Olympic Movement.

The Ministry and the NOC also agreed to postpone the NOC elections for six months which was earlier scheduled for December 27, to find a common understanding and to establish the necessary conditions to the Sports Law.
