dc.description.abstract The people of this nation were always avid lovers and supporters of sports. The nation bursts with exuberating energy and color whenever the FIFA or ICC World Cup occur. Football was vastly viewed and enjoyed by the people of this nation, reaching its heights in the 70s and 80s. Bangladesh has come under the limelight of world sporting news due to the nation’s stellar performances in Cricket over the past several years. The country has a strong tradition of exhibiting games such as Boli khela, Lathi khela, Nouka Baich and Kabaddi, which is still evident in many rural areas. Football and Cricket are also popular among the rural folks of this country. Foreign sports such as Cricket, Football, Badminton, Hockey, Basketball, etc. are mostly played by the urban dwellers of Bangladesh. Due to lack of proper organization and funding, the infrastructure and development of several of these sports have degraded over time. With the Bangladesh Cricket team bringing fame to our nation, it has overshadowed most other sports that our country participates in, be it the national or international level. The proposed Sports Training Complex in Purbachal New Town seeks to provide a neutral ground for flourishing athletes; and proper environment and space to hone their skills. It aims to house several sporting activities, with state of the art facilities and training grounds. Several playgrounds will be kept open to all, since an ever expanding Dhaka needs more urban playgrounds and greenery. Having lost many of its fields to illegal acquisition and encroachment, the proposed Sports Complex will breathe new life for the urban-scape, promoting sports within the younger community. Purbachal, as a new township on the periphery of Dhaka, holds numerous possibilities; which is embodied by the proposed sports multiplex itself. The aim of this paper is to look into methods to propose; a compound which will emulate the spirit and energy of Bangladesh, embody the progression of technology and knowledge, provide feasible and sustainable ideas and solutions for a sporting complex. The Sports Training Complex will set its sights on further enhancing the reputation of Bangladesh in the sporting world, with its wide array of homegrown talent. en_US
