KCCA FC chairman Martin Ssekajja has confirmed that the club has already received part of the money from parent body KCCA to construct a stadium.
The project is expected to cost around Sh.10bn and Ssekaja has revealed that an initial Sh2.5bn has been approved by the parliament.
The chairman made the remarks on Friday at the club’s home ground StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo. He said that the work will kickoff in about three months.
“Many people wanted to know about what’s going on about the construction of the stadium, many fans have complained about rain and sunshine among other things that don’t suit them when watching games and we took that serious,” said Ssekagya.
“We promised to work on it immediately and as we speak there is money for initial stages.
“In a duration of three months, we expect the works to kick off, we are in a state of sketching a contractor to accomplish the plan that needed more study works to reach standards that people send to us in the designs and we expect to advertise the job in two weeks time.
“The job would have been completed in about two years but because we are to receive money in halves there will be some prolonged job to about three years.”
The works at the Phillip Omondi stadium will start at the VVIP side, platinum side and later proceed to the ordinary section.
With the numbers growing at KCCA FC, the capacity will be increased from 10,000 to 20,000.
Ssekagya added that the club still needs sponsorship from its fans and sponsors.
