Aduana Stars to spend GHC800k on refurbishment of home grounds

Ghana Premier League champions Aduana Stars are set to spend GHC 800 in revamping their stadium ahead of their next year's participation in the CAF Champions League, according to Osagyefo Nana Agyemang Badu II.

Aduana Stars clinched the just ended Ghana Premier League after finishing the season with 57 points from 30 round of games.

By virtue of winning the league, the Fire Boys will represent the nation in the CAF Champions League next season, but their stomping ground, Nana Agyemang Badu II Park does not meet the required standard to host international matches, hence it needs a facelift.

And the club has engaged Amasco Consult as engineers to undertake expansion works at the Park. Work started this week and has been scheduled to span 45 days by the end of which an entirely new pitch will be rolled out.

The facility will also be expanded to at least a 5,000-capacity ground. It also comes with a doping centre.

“We are about to give our Park a massive facelift. If you noticed today, there already are 1000 bags of cement and iron rods worth GH¢46,000 deposited at the venue,” Nana Agyemang Badu II disclosed.

“I have signed a contract worth GH¢800,000 for this project so we have a standard park which can host about 5,000 people."

“By the end of the year, the Park will be ready,” he stated after announcing a reward package to the team for their league triumph."
