The construction of the Heart Stadium at the Yadah Hotel  in Zimbabwe is in its final stages, and it’s set to be commissioned by the Castle Lager Premiership side, Yadah FC, in just one week. This stadium has been under construction for the past two months and is on track to become the fastest-built stadium in the country, surpassing the previous record held by Ngezi Platinum’s Baobab Stadium, which was completed in just six months back in 2016.

The Heart Stadium is already impressively equipped, with a lush green suspended pitch, grandstands with bucket seats, and CAF standard change-rooms. The progress has received positive feedback from experts and key officials, including the Minister of Sport, Recreation, Arts, and Culture, Kirsty Coventry, who have visited the venue. Prophet Walter Magaya, the driving force behind the project, expressed his satisfaction with the construction, stating that workers have been tirelessly working to ensure the stadium’s swift completion.

Initial Construction Capacity for The Heart Stadium

While the initial capacity of the stadium will be 5000, there are plans for future expansion to accommodate up to 20,000 spectators.

Magaya emphasized that the construction process has been guided by experts in the field, and workers have been putting in round-the-clock shifts to meet the ambitious goal of commissioning the stadium on November 5th, which is just a week away. He thanked all the stakeholders who have contributed to the stadium’s construction and clarified that this endeavor is driven by his love for football and his commitment to his country, rather than personal gain.

The founder of the Prophetic Healing and Deliverance Ministries Church, Prophet Walter Magaya, expressed his dedication to football, stating that he is building the stadium not just for his team, Yadah, but for the benefit of the entire country. He emphasized the importance of meeting the technical standards set by CAF, which would enable even the national teams, such as the Warriors, to play at the Heart Stadium.

This stadium represents a significant development in the world of sports in the country and holds the promise of hosting top-level matches, contributing to the growth of football in Zimbabwe.
