Burden reveals ‘urban oasis’ of Kai Tak Sports Park

Yesterday (Wednesday) delegates at our first TheTicketingBusiness Asia meeting in Hong Kong were briefed by Darren Burden, Project Executive Director (SMG), Kai Tak Sports Park on the ambition, timeline and procurement processes for this landmark sports and entertainment destination development.

Scheduled for completion in 2023, Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Sports Park will provide high-quality facilities, not only for major events but also for daily enjoyment by the community.

Burden explained how, with a wide variety of sports venues, open spaces, park facilities, retail and dining outlets across 28 hectares, Kai Tak Sports Park is set to be an urban oasis to meet the diverse needs of the public, and professional and amateur athletes.

The precinct will comprise a 50,000-seat Main Stadium, a 5,000-seat Public Sports Ground, a 10,000-seat Indoor Sports Arena, and other supporting facilities.

Burden added that Kai Tak Sports Park will cater for a wide range of major sports events, as well as other non-sports events such as concerts, exhibitions, carnivals and a variety of other events and activities.

The overall project is being delivered and operated by Kai Tak Sports Park Limited – a subsidiary of New World Development Company Limited and NWS Holdings Limited.

KTSPL’s project team comprises overseas and local experts experienced in design, construction, venue management, sales and marketing, and retail and operation.

Burden also touched on the content and ticketing strategies as part of the briefing.
