REFURBISHMENT and upgrading of Lugogo Indoor Stadium starts tomorrow, National Council of Sports has said.

The sh700m facelift, funded by the MTN Foundation, is the first ever on the indoor stadium which marks its golden jubilee next year.

Work was expected to commence at the beginning of January but it was delayed by the architects and quality surveyors.

“It was neither NCS nor MTN but documentations by the architect that delayed it. However much we wanted to speed it up, we could not. But I’m happy it is going to kick off,” NCS general secretary Jasper Aligawesa said yesterday.

MTN and NCS in June reached an agreement that has effectively renamed the facility MTN Indoor Stadium until 2018.

It will include refurbishment of both the interior and exterior of the dilapidated roof, windows, drainage, installation of a computerised scoreboard and repairing the floor.

MTN Foundation trustee Noel Meier was confident the upgraded facility will produce the next generation of superstars. The stadium can host boxing, volleyball, netball and basketball among others.
