The project that had been slightly delayed by COVID-19 pandemic, expected to cost a whopping $200 million all by one man-Hamis Kiggundu is surely almost complete.
Like ham has always said, that it will serve as a legacy to develop the sports industry in Uganda, again truly it’s marvelous to say.
Let alone Nakivubo Stadium becoming a world-class sports facility, it’s a place the Ham and his engineers have designed to honor the Country’s Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) athletes.
Banners huge in nature have been erected all over the stadium with pictures of greatest athletes of all sporting disciplines.
I see Inzikuru, Kipsiro, Kiprotich, Cheptegei, Kiplimo among others on the banners. -Great artributions and designs.
The Nakivubo War Memorial Stadium in East Africa has undergone a major redevelopment project and transformed it into a state-of-the-art sports facility, including a 40,000-seat football stadium that will also accommodate other sports activities like athletics, basketball, netball, and volleyball.
The project, which has been visited by FIFA officials to ensure compliance with international construction procedures, has now reached a major milestone.
Kudos to Hamis Kiggundu, a young billionaire taking lead in this project.
The stadium will also feature VIP and VVIP sections, executive wings, and a range of amenities such as medical rooms, referee rooms, six restaurants, two cinema halls, and parking for over 1,000 cars.
