Ndola Stadium In Pictures

The completion works of the Ndola Stadium is schedule and the ultra-modern stadium is likely to host the final 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifier between Zambia and Libya in October.

Last week government signed a US$8.5 million (about K40 billion) contract with Anhui Foreign Economic Construction Group (AFEC) for construction of access roads at Ndola stadium.

“The contract awarded to AFEC also includes landscaping, water storm drain, parking lots and other associated works needed to complete works on the facility,” then Works and Supply Minister Gabriel Namulambe said.

The work is scheduled to take four months but the Chinese firm has assured Government that it will finish the job in two months.

“Government is confident that the company will complete the works before the end of September…our target remains the same that the stadium be ready as stipulated in the contract.

“We want the national team to play their next Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Libya at the new stadium,” Namulambe said.

The Chipolopolo host Libya on October 8 in the last game of the qualifiers for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations to be co-hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.

Namulambe said works on the access roads and other associated works have since commenced.

The government was supposed to construct the two access roads on the eastern side and on the northern side but the works were not included in the contract.

Namulambe also said works on the 60,000-seater Lusaka stadium scheduled to be completed in 30 months are progressing well.

Chinese firm Shanghai Construction Company who are working on the Lusaka stadium have also been awarded a contract to upgrade the dilapidated Independence Stadium.

    This is great. Now we need proper support facilities such as a modern bus terminal to receive the various soccer fans from all over the world who will use public transport.

    Muchaala, are you sure it is a bus terminus we need, & not an airport??? Saying that, I see your point of being pragmatic, as this is Zambia with the MMD at the helm, albeit for a few more weeks!!!
