  Hong Kong Stadium

Facilities at the Hong Kong Stadium are continually maintained and improved by the department through a series of maintenance programmes. In 2003, the pitch was upgraded to the standard for staging international events. The condition of the ground drew praise from both local and visiting athletes.

Major improvements included the installation of a visual fire alarm system and replacement of the existing scoreboard. The department also plans to replace the public address system.

A total of 34 events was staged at the stadium throughout the year, attracting an aggregate attendance of about 479,000. The department is making every effort to boost utilisation of the stadium and is accepting bookings on a more flexible basis. Concessionary rentals, calculated on the basis of the actual operating expenses, are readily available to non-profit-making and charitable organisations for holding community events.

The prolonged economic downturn in recent years has, to some extent, affected the use and revenue of the stadium. But the department is taking steps to promote the wider use of the stadium for more diversified sports, entertainment and community events.
