Communication giants, MTN, has converted the old training pitch of Kumasi Asante Kotoko at Adako Jachie in Kumasi into a world-class football pitch for the use of the football club.
The facility was constructed by Hartiffan Company Limited, a local Ghanaian company over an 11-month period at a cost of GH₵524,000.
The pitch comes with a 10-seater technical sitting bench, a perimeter fencing and a 40,000-litre storage water facility to keep the pitch fresh and green.
Beyond that, the contractor has recommended the building of changing rooms, installations of floodlights and a maintenance contract with experts to prolong the durability of the pitch.
The consultant to the project, Mr Charles Amissah Koomson of Multi Build Limited, said the pitch remains one of the best in the country but could still be improved to a higher level.
The Chief Marketing Officer of MTN, Ghana, Mr Noel Kojo Ganson said the investment preceded a previous contribution of GH₵375,000 made by MTN towards the construction of changing rooms and offices for the technical staff of Asante Kotoko in 2011.
