Mwanza Regional Commissioner’s office has pledged to support the installation of artificial turf on the centrally-located oldest stadium of Nyamagana.

Regional Commissioner Evarist Ndikilo who was accompanied by the city’s mayor Stanslaus Mabula confirmed to the Tanzania Football Federation’s president Leodegar Tenga that the authorities will give boost by contributing a staggering $118,000 for the installation of the turf.

The total cost of the project which is highly funded by FIFA will now hit $ 618,000 as FIFA supports with injection of $500,000 through its Goal Project IV.

The RC and City Mayor who visited the TFF offices in Dar es Salaam yesterday, have jointly confirmed that they will be able to organize fund raising to attain the pledged sum by mid next month.
The two officials were also accompanied by the city’s director Hida Hassan.

The Goal Project IV has been channeled to Mwanza for the refurbishment of the Nyamagana Stadium that came close to extinction through estate developers in 2008.
