The first stage of the construction of the Sports Complex of the Azuay Football Association (AFA) was completed, located in the Los Álamos sector, in the Cumbe parish. Yesterday morning the progress of the works was confirmed with the presence of the president of the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF), Francisco Egas.
The head of the FEF was motivated by the shape that the stage is taking, which already has a regulation field (105x68m) and two 30x20m fields. Egas himself was in charge, on May 9, 2022, of placing the first flat cut on that land.
“We returned to this place after a year and a half and we see the progress that the work has made. I commit the support of our institution to finish this Complex as soon as possible, which will not only benefit AFA but all its affiliates, and provincial football itself. Some values have been delivered for infrastructure and we are going to work to make this space suitable.”
For his part, Servio Cabrera explained that the objective of having this space, as soon as possible, is the lack of fields in the province for affiliated clubs. Therefore, it is expected that with the construction of the stands and sanitary batteries, this site will receive tournaments in the first quarter of 2024 or no later than May of the same year.
According to the leader, the works have a progress of 50%. So far, approximately $100,000 has been invested. “The first stage was completed with the inclusion of three fields with sown grass. We hope that the other three continue with the same process and there are no problems.”
According to Schubert Chica, in charge of the work, so far the stage has a regulation field of 105×68 meters, and two of 30x20m. During the next few weeks, work will be carried out on one more field for 11-a-side football.
Chica announced that the work in the grassland has been supervised by an agronomist, since kikuyu was planted to paint this space green.
“Maintenance is done with irrigation and fertilizers, this must be constant. The three courts are suitable for use; The civil works are still missing, but in the coming months an investment is expected to complete these works. We are 50% complete with the complex.”
