WORK to upgrade the Thuwanna sports ground in Thingangyun township is expected to be finished in April, a Myanmar Football Federation spokesperson said last week.

“[The] authorities in charge of the project hope that work will be finished in April,” U Soe Moe, MFF’s media officer, said last week, adding that work started in April 2011.

U Soe Moe said the upgrades include the addition of a new grandstand that will increase maximum seating to about 35,000, from 20,000. ACE Construction company, which is headquartered in Thaketa township, is doing the construction work.

“MFF has spent about K700 million on these upgrades.”
