Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has formally inaugurated the Hayatabad Sports Complex with the aim to provide healthy and recreational opportunities to the youth of the province. The Sports complex is spread over an area of 150 Kanals of land and has been completed in three years at a cost of Rs 210 million.

The sports complex has hockey, football and cricket grounds along with a multipurpose hall and courts for playing tennis and squash games. Additionally, separate section for board games has also been established along with a separate gymnasium for male and female. The sports complex was the second of its kind completed by the present government after completion of Bacha Khan Sports Complex in Charsadda in 2015.

Imran Khan clarified on the occasion that the PTI led coalition government has prioritized the promotion of sports activities in the province. The youth of KP have been bestowed with unmatchable talent but shortage of sports facilities in the past has undermined their promotion, he maintained. As part of promoting sports activities in the province, the present government has successfully completed the construction of international standard hockey turf at Mardan Sports Complex at an expense of Rs 67.69 million, he mentioned.

The Hockey turf was completed by the present government on fast track basis making it the only international standard turf available in the Province, he said, adding that sports kits worth Rs 10 million were distributed among players of different games for promoting healthy and recreational activities in the province.
