More sports infrastructure is lined-up and will be coming to Goa. Goa is small state but the love for sports is very high, hence to host the 36th National games in Goa is the best venue. This is what the Union Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju said on Saturday. He was in Goa to inaugurate the Navelim sports Complex.

The Union minister was in Goa to inaugurate five different indoor stadiums constructed for the upcoming National Games, scheduled to be held in October-November, 2020. Goa has good football culture like the Northeast and West Bengal. Barring this, India has not been able to develop sports culture. For Indians, sports is not a way of life, which is reality, he added.

Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant and Sports Minister of Goa Babu Azgaonkar has appealed to all associations and the sports players to start practicing hard and get highest medals in favour of Goa. Nearly 37 types of Sports will be played at the upcoming 36th National Games to be hosted in Goa.
