KUCHING, April 2: With effect from April 1, the MBKS Indoor Stadium will be closed to public access.

In a statement today, Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor Dato Wee Hong Seng revealed that the council has officially handed over the MBKS Indoor Stadium to the appointed contractors, Liscorp Services and Cottage Holdings Sdn Bhd, for upgrading works as the stadium will be one of the venues to host Malaysia Games (Sukma) 2024 in August.
