The new expansion has added a further 600 seats to bring the section’s full capacity up to 1,225 spectators.

“Futher to that, we are also refurbishing all areas that may have been damaged during the regular season.”
“We are also equipping the stadium with other equipment to ease operations as we look forward to football next season” he added.
