Kitwe City Council has announced that the ongoing renovation of Garden Park Stadium the home ground of Kitwe United will gobble about K1.2 million.
The stadium is receiving a facelift as Kitwe prepares to compete in the 2018 FAZ Super Division.
Kitwe Mayor Christopher Kang’ombe said the stadium needed urgent rehabilitation.
“Kitwe City Council will spend close to K 1.2 million towards urgent rehabilitation works on the pitch, replacement of wooden terraces and mounting a secured perimeter fence,” he said.
“I took time to inspect the facility on the progress made to uplift the standards at Kitwe Playing Fields,” Kang’ombe added.
Kitwe are returning to the top league after an 11-year absence.
