Ascot Stadium upgrade on cards
Castle Premiership side Chapungu have mooted plans to partner Gweru City Council in upgrading the club’s home ground, Ascot Stadium to Fifa standards.

Ascot among other facilities does not have a media booth which makes it impossible for SuperSport to broadcast live from the stadium; hence an upgrade would give the venue a welcomed face lift that enables it to host Premier League matches.

The venue’s ablution facilities, VIP stands and terraces are in a sorry state; hence the urgency.

Speaking in Gweru, air Force of Zimbabwe Wing Commander Levine Mukotekwa, who is the Chapungu CEO, said his club was committed to the project.

“We are ready to partner Gweru City Council to upgrade Ascot stadium,” Mukotekwa said.

He said his club’s stance will not be altered by relegation fears, although Waru Waru remains unsafe despite Sunday’s win over Black Rhinos.

Currently, the Gweru-based side are on ninth place on the log with 37 points and face Highlanders in their last match of the season.

“We are not abandoning the development of Ascot Stadium. This is regardless of whether we stay in the league or relegated,” the Chapungu boss said.

The club’s plans have been stalled by Gweru City Council’s approval of stadium construction plan.

“It is now left to the City council to approve our plans because it is their property. They have not yet approved our plan,” Mukotekwa said.

“We are going to budget some funds for that stadium because we are the major beneficiaries of that facility.”- Daily News
