Inauguration of a new building for Baghlan’s Sports Department

baghlan sportsThe national Olympics committee has built a new building for Baghlan’s Sports Department along with a playing ground and a public park in Pulkhumri city at a cost of 11mn AFN.

Having 14 rooms and a big hall, the 3-storey building has resolved the problem of lack of space of the Department.

“Previously, we would operate in rented houses. We were unable to invite provincial teams to our province. With our new building, we can invite 100-200 guests. Inviting other teams and holding matches will help enhance our sports sector,” said Ahmadshah Momini, Head of Baghlan’s Sports Department.

A number of Baghlan’s athletes expressed their happiness about the establishment of the new building. According to them, their Sports Department never had a specific address and always operated in rented houses.

“This building is a positive stride towards improving sports in Baghlan. Such steps definitely encourage our athletes and help them advance,” said Mohammad Kabir Salihi, an athlete from Baghlan.

Baghlan province has witnessed a remarkable progress in its sports sector, having a number of medal winner athletes. However, officials of the Sports Department have complains about the lack of support and encouragement from the government.
