We are really looking forward to the events getting started and welcoming everyone to what will be a fantastic sporting spectacle. We wish all the athletes the best of luck during the games and Malaysia Boleh!”

 “As a purpose-built facility, we are able to deliver to the customised needs of many different types of events and unconventional functions. We pride ourselves on our flexibility and adaptability, and being chosen to hold six sporting events during Kuala Lumpur 2017 is the perfect example of this,” Pryor elaborated.

Located in the heart of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) precinct, with a view of the iconic PETRONAS Twin Towers and 50-acre KLCC Park, visitors attending Kuala Lumpur 2017 at the Centre are spoilt for choice given the varied and exciting range of recreational, entertainment, food & beverage and accommodation options available.
