…to host up to 10,000 fans
Construction of dressing rooms and stands at the Chiwembe stadium are slated to start this month, the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has said.
A statement from the FA says that the works include construction of a new spectacular stand on the South west side of the pitch; construction of dressing rooms as well as a car parking area.
As for the already existing stands, the FA says they will be upgraded by having a spectator canopy as well as an installation of seats.
The project according to FAM’s Chief Executive Officer Alfred Gunda is being financed under the FIFA Forward programme to a tune of $1.4 Million.
The project is expected to run through to July this year.
The FA has since announced the facility will remain closed for use until the end of the works.
