New sports arena for Maputsoe

MASERU — Fifa development officer, Ashford Mamelodi, is expected to officiate at the sod-turning function for the construction of a new sports arena in Maputsoe on Saturday.
The Maputsoe Sports Arena is a joint initiative between Fifa and the Lesotho Football Association (Lefa).
Lefa vice-president Khiba Mohoanyane told the Lesotho Times the construction of the arena will help improve football infrastructure in the country.
“Lefa, through a Fifa initiative, will on Saturday hold a sod-turning ceremony in Maputsoe where the construction of that sports facility will start soon after,” Mohoanyane said.
The Maputsoe facility will be the third sporting arena in the country to be financed by Fifa’s Goal Project Three.
The arena will be fully fenced and will have an artificial turf.
“We are working very hard to ensure that we house a number of well-developed sporting facilities that will help in the development of football in the country,” Mohoanyane said.
Meanwhile, Lefa administration officer, Mokhosi Mohapi and Likuena team manager, Khiba Mohoanyane will on Monday leave the country for a Fifa workshop in Cairo, Egypt.
The purpose of the workshop is to train all Fifa member associations that have qualified for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers on Fifa’s expectations ahead of the games.
The workshop will run from April 24 to 28 and will be attended by national team managers and office administrators.
The qualifiers are scheduled to commence in June with Lesotho set to play Ghana on June 1.
