Rehabilitation of stadium will boost economy

16 January 2013, 15:54 Oduor Omondi

Stakeholders in the sporting sector have welcomed the ongoing rehabilitation of Kisumu’s Moi Stadium to elevate it to international standards.

Led by Nyanza regional Football Kenya Federation (FKF) national executive committee member Tom Alila, the stakeholders said the move to improve sporting infrastructure in the town will boost the country’s bid to host this year’s CECAFA championship.

Alila said the elevation of the stadium to international level will increases the country’s chances of holding international matches and will translate to loads of benefits to the residents.

“Gor Mahia has already agreed to host their Confederation of African Championship (CAF) here,” he divulged.

Speaking as he toured the facility to witness the laying of a turf on the pitch, Alila also appealed to other clubs in the Western Kenya region to play their premier league matches there.

“We appeal to Muhoroni and Western Stima FC to move their home matches here once rehabilitation works are complete by May this year,” he said.

Alila further noted that the stadium will be a first class facility to host international matches since it was centrally placed in the East African region.
