Wembley Sports Construction Company Limited (WSCCL) says it is ready to partner the government to deliver on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s promise to construct a community sports complex within the Zongos and inner cities across the country.
Last week, the President commissioned a mini stadia, Lord’s Wembley Plus+, which doubles as a community centre for the people of Shukura (Losso), a suburb in Ablekuma Central Constituency of the Greater Accra Region, with a pledge that the Zongo Development Fund, established by the government, would continue to promote and support sports infrastructure development in Zongos and inner cities.
The state-of-the-art park was constructed by Wembley Sports Construction Limited, a solely-owned Ghanaian company with expertise in artificial turf construction across the country.
The park has about 450- seater stands for spectators floodlights, an inner perimeter, fencing two separate changing and washrooms, VIP sitting area, a gym, conference area and offices.
The Chief Executive Officer of Wembley Sports Construction Limited, Robert Tetteh Coleman, has revealed his firm would roll out 100 artificial football parks across the country in 2019 to help develop sporting talents within the communities and also curb challenges with the non-availability of playgrounds within Zongos and inner cities.
Mr Coleman has called on all stakeholders to join hands in the execution of the project known as “One Constituency, One artificial Football Park” and its realisation would provide the environment to help unearth football talents, protect players from career-threatening injuries and curtail juvenile delinquencies.
The Shukura Park brings to 10 the number of artificial foot all fields constructed by Wembley Sports Limited after similar parks at Madina Zongo and Accra Academy in Greater Accra Region, Walewale Zongo park in the Northern Region, Kyebi Zongo park in the Eastern Region.
For his part, the Director of Operations at the Presidency and a brainchild of the project, Lord Oblitey Commey, said he feels proud that the people of Ablekuma Central can also boast of a modern playing field to help develop talents in and around the community.
