Five new multipurpose facilities coming to Puerto Plata

Puerto Plata.- The Dominican Government has launched an ambitious plan to build five multipurpose sports clubs in the country, with a total investment of over 200 million pesos. The project, spearheaded by the Ministry of Sports (Miderec) and the Presidential Commission to Support Provincial Development, aims to provide modern facilities for sports, education, and community development.

At an event held at the Gregorio Luperón Club in Puerto Plata, Administrative Minister Igor Rodríguez Durán presented a certificate worth 105 million 744 thousand 607 pesos and 45 cents to Minister of Sports Francisco Camacho, marking the start of the construction of basketball roofs for five iconic clubs: Gregorio Luperón, 12 de Octubre, Gustavo Behal, Hugo Kunhardt, and Miramar League.

Miderec will be responsible for constructing sports centers at Gregorio Luperón, 12 de Octubre, and Miramar League clubs, while the Presidential Commission to Support Provincial Development will build facilities at Gustavo Behal and Hugo Kunhardt.

Minister Camacho emphasized that the current government, led by President Luis Abinader, has made significant investments in sports infrastructure, with over 185 school sports facilities being built or renovated. He noted that this investment is crucial for the development of children and young people, as it combines physical activity with education and helps to build a better nation.

Camacho also praised Rodríguez Durán’s efforts in facilitating the construction and renovation of sports facilities across the country. “I hope to have Igor (Rodríguez) in sports because the youth of our country needs him,” he said, referring to Rodríguez Durán’s commitment to supporting sports development.

The project is expected to have a positive impact on the local communities, providing safe and modern facilities for athletes of all ages to practice their favorite sports.
