Ghana champions Aduana Stars have closed down their home grounds for a massive facelift ahead of their return to the Caf Champions League.
The Fire Club has engaged Amasco Consult as engineers to undertake expansion works at the Osagyefo Agyemang Badu I Park, Dormaa.
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.
Speaking on the project, bank-roller Oseadeeyo Nana Agemang Badu II said last Sunday: “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…”
“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.
Being the country’s sole representatives, Aduana Stars intend to use the NAB I Park as home grounds for the Africa campaign which starts early next year.
