Bulawayo stadia to get facelift



The city of Bulawayo is going to upgrade and renovate Barbourfields and Luveve Stadiums for the 2013 season.

Barbourfields is used by crowd pullers Highlanders while Luveve is used by Chicken Inn who will be joined by newly promoted How Mine.

PSL CEO Kennedy Ndebele, who started his new three-year term on Monday, confirmed that the two Bulawayo stadiums will be renovated just ahead of the new season. He said that the City of Bulawayo is the owners of the stadia and they have decided to give them a facelift.

He told supersport.com that this goes well with helping improve the game in the country and praised the city for taking the decision to overhaul the stadia. Not only will they be improving the facilities, but also the pitch.

“If you have good stadiums both in the stands and the field then you expect to have a good game week in week out. This is great coming from the City Council itself. They want their teams to play in good stadiums. They are renovating everything at the two stadiums. All the facilities including the playing field. This is really good and we are looking forward to a great season starting in March,” Ndebele said.
