Mombasa county embarks on a project to rehabilitate football grounds to FIFA standards
Mombasa county has embarked on a project to rehabilitate football grounds to FIFA standards. Phase two of the Frere Town grounds refurbishment has already begun. The county government has invested 10 million in putting up grass, fencing the ground, building changing rooms for players, and drilling a borehole that will enable the ground to remain green throughout. The move is expected to promote and boost talent among the youth and also reduce the rampant drug abuse witnessed in the area. The ground is the home ground to the only team in Kisauni constituency participating in the division 2 league. In the plan the county is expected to put up a grass field, fencing the ground, build changing rooms for players and the technical staff as well as drilling a borehole for the ground, the move has been welcomed by the players and the community that own the ground saying it will impact positively in sporting talent. At the moment, the county government has earmarked 48 grounds that will benefit from the upgrade program, using the Covid-19 closure of grounds and sports to make changes. Frere town will be ready for use in the next two months.
