THE City of Manila will not be selling the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex under the administration of mayor Isko Moreno.
The city’s Public Information Office posted on its social media account the agreement between Manila and the Philippine Sports Commission following a meeting at the city hall.
Details of the agreement were not elaborated but the ownership and control of the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex were a contentious issue in the past.
The land where the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex stands is owned by Manila, but the Philippine Sports Commission has control of the facilities.
During his administration, former Manila mayor Joseph Estrada bared plans that the property be sold to a private entity but the plan was opposed by several quarters including the National Historical Institute.
