Butuan Polysports Complex, is a national sports complex of the Philippines located at Barangay Tiniwisan, Butuan City and is the venue of athletic events of both Agusan del Norte and Caraga region.[3] There are only 3 sport venues which was completed. They are: Polysports Basketball Arena, Polysports Football Stadium, and the Polysports Baseball Park prior to the 19th Caraga Regional Athletic Meet (or CRAM 2016).[4]


The sports complex was started in 2012 when the old sports complex in Libertad was unfinished.[5]


In November 2015, J.D. Legaspi had expired the mayor's permit, according to the COA.[6] In December 2015, the previous mayor probed for plunder and graft over P253,000,000 sports complex contract.[7][8] However, in February 2016, the previous mayor ordered to arrest 43 Brgy. Captains for perjury and vexation and the connection of the polysports complex contract.[9][10][11] In April 2016, 3 out of 43 Brgy. Captains were arrested by the local police for using drugs, and illegal possession of firearms and ammunition.[12][13][14] As of now, only the rubberized track oval, football field, and the basketball gymnasium have been completed so far.
