Must read

President Museveni Kaguta has commissioned Nakivubo stadium which has been redeveloped by businessman Hamis Kiggundu under a Public Private Partnership deal since 2017.

The stadium has a seating capacity of 25,000 spectators, making it an ideal venue for various sports activities such as athletics, netball, bodybuilding, basketball, and volleyball. The stadium also features state-of-the-art amenities, including a gym, medical facility, restaurants, and other facilities.

The redevelopment of Nakivubo Stadium is a significant milestone for Uganda’s sports sector, and it could boost the country’s chances of co-hosting the 2027 Africa Cup of Nations finals with neighboring Tanzania and Kenya in the Pamoja AFCON joint hosting.

Notably, the commissioning of Nakivubo War Memorial Stadium comes just days before Namboole Stadium hosts a test match in the UPL between Vipers and Bul, and KCCA and Villa on of May 1, 2024 as preparations for the AFCON 2027 intensify. Initially projected to take four years, the redevelopment process was slowed down by the Covid-19 pandemic.

However, the completion of the project marks a significant achievement for the government and the contractors.
