Kampala: City businessman Hamis Kiggunda a.k.a Ham has revealed that the multibillion Nakivubo stadium construction will be completed soon and unveiled to Ugandans.
Three years ago, Ham who embarked on transforming Nakivubo Into a modern and world-class stadium revealed that the construction is progressively transforming and the wait will finally be over and Ugandan football lovers will have access to the multi-billion sports facility.
According to Ham, fans will be able to buy their tickets electronically from wherever they will be and only present a code at the entrance in order to avoid congestion.
Nakivubo construction gained momentum after Ham doubled efforts to transform the facility, which he had projected to be ready for reopening by the end of 2021 but was affected by Covid-19, and the construction budget increased partly due to their pursuit to end more flooding around the stadium which was a major case before renovation.
When completed the multibillion sports arena will have a 35,000 sitter capacity with boardrooms and conference facilities, changing rooms, rooms for indoor games, an athletics track, a gym, a netball, a basketball court a hotel, and multi-level parking for up to 9,600 cars.
According to Ham, the renovation that kicked off in 2017 is not only a dream come true for Ugandan football lovers but a legacy thus calling upon Ugandans to invest in developing ‘our motherland’
“From a realistic and reasonable point of view, this is not just a stadium but a legacy and clear illustration to all Ugandans that if Uganda is to develop it’s our responsibility as Ugandans to develop our motherland and yes we can,” Hamis Kiggundu told journalists while touring the site in downtown Kampala.
