COMMUNITY OVER 'BIG BANG': In Singapore, Lim Say Heng reported the Singapore Sports Hub "may soon be a magnet for world-class international events, but its debut next April will feature a community event instead of a 'big bang' opening." Singapore Sports Hub CEO Philippe Delavaud said, "It will have all types of sports at all the venues ... we want to open (the Hub) with community events and sports experience type of events." Wong added that the $1.33B facility's official opening "may take place" when Singapore hosts the biennial Southeast Asian Games in June '15. Wong: "You can't have an official opening on day one. We are going to phase in all the systems and make sure the operations work well over time because it's such a big venue" (THE NEW PAPER, 11/14).
