Mombasa county boss has confirmed that the construction of Bomu Stadium in Changamwe Sub-county is progressing well.
Governor Ali Joho said the stadium will have an official FIFA standard 11-aside Astro-Turf pitch with full amenities, including lavatories, changing rooms, flood lights for night games with a sitting capacity of over 3,000 fans.
This comes few weeks after Joho launched 11 aside Uwanja wa Mbuzi Mini Stadium in Kongowea, Nyali Sub-county, in May.
The stadium is equipped with lavatories, changing rooms, canteen, flood lights and cafeteria sections with a sitting capacity of over 3,000 people.
The pitch is a boost to sports and talent in the Coastal county, even as Joho said his government would continue supporting local talent.
“We will continue to develop such facilities just like 11 aside Uwanja wa Mbuzi Mini Stadium and the 7-Aside pitches in Majengo, Kisauni and Kizingo to enhance talent growth amongst our youth,” he said, Sunday.
Joho noted this encourages sports tourism, besides creating safe havens within the neighbourhoods for children to play and engage in positive and constructive interactions.
