Calvary FC Acquires Land For Stadium Construction In Midigo, Calls For More Support
The management of WestNile based StarTimes FUFA Big League entity Calvery Football Club has acquired 6 acres of land in Midigo.
The land is situated at Midigo Town Council in Yumbe district and it’s meant for construction of a 20000 seater stadium for the club.
Upon completion the stadium will be named as “The Horizon Stars Arena” a name derived from the club’s sobriquet “the Horizon Stars.”
According to the Club PRO Mr Fudribo Owen part of work has started on the site, however an official ground breaking ceremony will be held very soon to lead the way for full construction works.
Owen also added that they will be unvieling different platforms where supporters and stakeholders can help the club to start or finish the project.
“We have bought a six acre of land to start up a stadia and the stadia is going to be a 20000 capacity stadium,” Owen told reporters during a Press Conference held at Hi-5 Lounge on Wednesday afternoon.
“it’s one big one that is coming and we feel we have part of the money but we’re starting resource mobilization that anybody out there will be part of it and we are going to be unvieling to you which platforms you can help this very club Calvary Football Club to start or finish the project.”
Calvary Football Club has been using Ababet GreenLight Stadium as their home ground for the last two seasons after earning promotion to the FUFA Big League tournament.
Originally the club used Midigo playground during their time in the regional league however after upgrading to the second tier the ground didn’t meet they required set by the FUFA club licensing committee hence shifting to Arua.
The good news is that the Horizon Stars will be shifting back to Yumbe and in Midigo Playground this coming season after completing work on the playground.
