International sports arena

The facility will have amphitheater, changing rooms and indoor training facilities and the county will also lay a tartan track and floodlights to facilitate evening events. According to Siaya Governor, Cornel Rasanga, the stadium will also provide an international sports arena for major national and international events which will attract revenue and create direct and indirect employment opportunities for the county.

Apart from Kasarani and Nyayo stadiums in Nairobi, no other stadium in the country can host an international match. The stadium facility is thus also expected to bridge the gap, and offer a conductive environment for many talented youths in the county to explore their talents. Bondo United are expected to use the stadium as their home ground.

In addition Governor Rasanga said they are also in the process of improving various sports grounds across the county including Musembe in North Gem, Akala in Wagai, Miguena and Nyilima.
