Ghana Premier League giants Hearts of Oak say they have plans of constructing a 15,000-seater stadium in the near future.
This was revealed during the commissioning of the club’s new Commercial Centre and sod-cutting for the construction of a new secretariat on Wednesday, May 11.
The Commercial Centre is the first part of a 4-step infrastructure project to modernize the oldest surviving football club in the country.
Speaking at the event, Board member Vincent Odotei Sowah divulged:
“Our journey to attain pre-eminent as a club not just in Ghana but Africa can’t be achieved without infrastructures. We want everyone especially the media to take note that this year will be the beginning of the rolling out of quadruple projects.
“One of the quadruple projects is the Hearts of Oak Commercial Centre which we are commissioning today.
“The second one is the sod cutting of the new head office of the club which will be done after this short ceremony.
“The third project of the quadruple project will be the commissioning of the twenty-acre sports facility at Pobiman.
“The quadruple project will be concluded with the building of our own 15,000-seater stadium somewhere in Accra. Today marks the beginning of the quadruple infrastructure project of Hearts of Oak.”

Board Chairman Togbe Afede also explained that infrastructure was key to the future of the club.
“We identified the need to build up infrastructure, to help us achieve our objectives.
“It is also one of the minimum requirements to enter the African Super League. Our academy is very important, our own stadium is very important,” he stated.
While on the brink of completing the ongoing Pobiman project, the construction of the new Hearts of Oak head office follows.
