President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom is to inaugurate Tuesday the floodlights system at the National Stadium in Male. The international standard floodlights system was set up at the cost of USD 1.4 million. Tuesday evening's ceremony will include a children's football match, a girls' football match, and a match between two teams from the Male League. The remaining matches of the Male League are to be played under floodlights during evenings. The first match, between Victory and Guraidhoo, will be held Thursday. The stadium is now open for use by the Male League teams to get the hang of playing under floodlights.
