Kampala, Uganda, November 21, 2020. 2019 League Champions, Nemostars have embarked on a project to build an indoor stadium for Volleyball. This was revealed by their Patron Neko Muduse Ojala, during the USPA Gala held on Wednesday at the Serena Hotel.
Currently, Uganda has one indoor stadium in Lugogo open to the public which most is often booked for weddings and Church services. The other smaller indoor facilities are institutional based, one at International Schools Uganda – Lubowa and the other in Luzira at the former GEMS Cambridge International School. There is also another privately owned indoor stadium in Mpigi (the Uganda Little League Baseball Centre). Makerere University halted the construction of what would have been another Indoor Facility within the Central Business District.
“The land is available and last week, we did the ground breaking.” A buoyant Ojala told the press. As he continued to state that The Project is expected to last at least 5- years at an estimated cost of UGX600Million.
“The facility will be usable for volleyball, basketball, handball, netball and badminton. But it will also have a separate outside murram “kataka” court like the one at Kololo then a separate sand beach volleyball court.” Ojala told www.Insidevolleyball.news
The facility will sit on 3-hecters of land in Namugongo. Ojala appealed to the Journalist to help drum up support for the project that will see Nemostars become the first Volleyball team in East Africa to fully own an indoor stadium.
Nemostars finished 6th in the 2019 Men’s African Club Championship held in Egypt, a feat not yet attained by any other Volleyball club from Uganda.
