During the 70s and 80s, the National Stadium was very popular with Singaporeans because of Malaysia Cup and National day celebrations held there. Every weekend when the local team is playing on home turf, all 50000 tickets will be sold out. Without the Malaysia cup and National day celebrations like before, the National Stadium will also become like the current Sports Hub.
In short, only Soccer and National day celebrations can bring the Sports Hub to life. Sad to say it will not happen because of our current standard of football in Singapore.
Unless a national dialogue is carried out to find out what has happened to our football scene, the Sports Hub will become a white elephant. Not much income is generated but spend millions to maintain. Is it worth its cost?
