Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, February 19) — Filipino athletes will soon have a home to train for competitions.

Malacañang on Tuesday announced that President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act 11214 or the Philippine Sports Training Center Act.

The law requires the construction of necessary sports facilities and amenities within 18 months in a location that is suitable and conducive to high-level training of athletes, coaches, and referees.

Under the measure, the Philippine Sports Commission will own the training center, including its sports facilities and amenities.

Duterte signed the law on February 14, 2019.

A ₱3.5-billion budget has been allotted for the establishment and construction of the facility. It has been included in the annual General Appropriations Act.
