SHANGHAI Construction Group (SCG) has presented a wide range of spare parts to the National Sports Council (NSC) for the maintenance of the Sekondi Stadium.
The items included parts for the scoreboard, the public address system and conference sound system, fire alarm system network and telephone systems, television monitoring system, cable television system, paints, and tiles.
The cost of the items were not disclosed.
In a brief remark, a Director of SCG, Mark Chen, mentioned that the donation marked the kind of cooperation that existed between his company and the NSC.
He said that after the completion of the Sekondi Stadium, Ghanaian engineers had been maintaining the facilities and equipment very well.
Mr Chen was hopeful that the NSC staff would continue to maintain the stadium so that the country could hold more matches and raise more funds.
Receiving the items, the Chief Executive Officer of the NSC, Mr Ernest Oduro-Mensah, said that the Sekondi Stadium needs to be maintained for the benefit of posterity.
“It takes great resources to keep the facility and we will continue to consult and seek the advice periodically from SCG”, he added .
The SCG took about one and half years to complete the 20,000-capacity Sekondi Stadium in 2007.
They constructed four dressing rooms, a 40-room hotel, four prestige rooms, a score board, a foot field, a standard clinic, conference rooms and communication centres.
