Omuthiya soccer stadium nears completion

The construction of the Omuthiya Sports Stadium in the Oshikoto Region is nearly completion.
Once completed, the stadium will be the second to be fitted with an artificial turf in country.
Funded by FIFA the construction of the project is estimated at a cost of about 8 million dollars.
About 80 percent of the initial work to put up the turf has been completed with only the goal posts and minor touches to be made before the facility is officially handed over to the council.
The town's Chief Executive Officer Samuel Mbango says the town will finally see its vision of having a state of the art sport facility to cater for the masses in northern Namibia.
Engineers at the site commended the Namibia Football Association for brining modern facilities to Omuthiya.
They further added due to the change in weather and increased lack of water in these parts of the world, this might the future for Africa because lawns are too costly.
Edel Grass from the Netherlands, a company renowned for designing and building artificial turf systems of all kinds in various African countries, constructed the stadium.
