ZAMBIA | Lusaka and Independence Stadiums | 50,000 & 30,000 capacity | U/C

now that i've actually found construction pics of this stadium time it got it's own thread

completion should be by 2013


new lusaka independence stadium"working name" and redevelopment on the current Independence stadium
President Rupiah Banda has predicted that Zambia would one day grab the African Cup title. Addressing soccer fans who turned up to have a glimpse of the President and the visiting Chinese Premier, President Banda predicted that the Africa Cup was coming to Zambia in-light of the earmarked construction of the modern stadia in the country.

Mr Banda observed that Zambia merely participated in the continental tournaments but failed to deliver and grab the Cup because both the people and the Chipolopolo Boys including many other players were not motivated owing to poor infrastructures in the country.

“Africa Cup title will be crowned to our country, be rest assured, he said. The happy-looking Banda told the fans to support Government in its programs of developing football including other sports disciplines in the country.

The president was speaking today when he laid a foundation stone at the location where the state of art Lusaka Stadium is to be constructed with the help of the Chinese government at a cost of US$94 million with a capacity to hold 50 000 people.



new stadium will sit next to the old stadium which is also going to be redeveloped work will start on both stadiums at the same time , the whole project should be completed in 3 years time

Independence stadium u/c clearing

we're building these 2 stadiums coz we need them not because of some dream of hosting a tournament(zambia hasn't said it wants to host a large tournament) its not a proptary at the moment bt will be ready one day to host afcons , all-african games , southern african games .
we want our athletics to train and play on the best stadia in the world. just like the olympic center that was completed last year this will be for people of zambia


i was just giving an example why 1 would have 2 stadia so the older stadium will be used as a training pitch /rugby pitch/athletics pitch etc. main stadium will be used for soccer , concerts , gatherings etc.

When the new stadium is built for Lusaka, the existing Independence Stadium should be torn down. (The west stand was already torn down in 2007).
