Cebu’s top sports honchos were delighted with Dynamic Herb Sports Incorporated’s initiative to construct a multi-sport complex that will feature the region’s first FIFA-standard artificial field at the South Road Properties in Cebu City.

Dubbed the Dynamic Herb Sports Complex, the facility will cover at least 12,000 square meters and it will feature an AstroTurf playing field and an indoor gymnasium that can be venues for sports such as basketball, futsal, badminton, volleyball, table tennis, among others.

The construction of the state-of-the-art sports complex will start this December and is expected to be completed by mid-2018.

Cebu Football Association (CFA) vice president Rico Navarro lauded the move, especially since Cebu lacks venues like this.

“If you want to develop football, you just need a lot of good fields. This will be a very big help,” said Navarro. “It will be a pride to Cebu football.”

Navarro also appreciated Dynamic Herb Sports Inc managing director Ugur Tasci for his effort in developing local sports despite belonging to the private sector.

Cebu City Sports Commission chairman Edward Hayco, meanwhile, expressed willingness to work with the support from Tasci.

“The city is always welcome to private initiatives,” said Hayco. “The private sector is an important ingredient to any sport. It plays a vital role.”

Tasci, who spearheaded this major property development project, revealed in a press conference at Raphael’s Cafe in SM Seaside City yesterday that the property, which was leased from the Borromeo brothers, will have shower rooms, locker rooms, coaching staff offices, group meeting spaces, press boxes, gear rental services, and medical and first aid facility for persons with disabilities.
