Vipers have just opened an expansion to the capacity of their iconic St Mary’s Stadium VIP section adding over 600 seats to bring the section’s capacity up to 1,225.
St Mary’s Stadium the home of Vipers Sports Club was officially opened in March 2017 with a CAF Confederation Cup match between the Venoms and Platinum Stars of South Africa. Since then, the stadium has constantly been changed and developed with various improvements to make going for matches a better experience for fans.
Artificial turf was installed replacing a natural grass pitch, magnificent technical areas, a state of the art gym are some of the various developments done since the official opening.
Earlier this year in March, Fifa, and Caf Certified the facility as fit to host international engagements after a thorough inspection tour by stadium inspectors Daniel Amokachi together with Emmanuel Dasoberi.
However, despite such achievement, the stadium authorities are not sitting on their laurels instead new developments are being introduced to enhance its features further.
In readiness for next season where Vipers are set to represent Uganda in the Caf Champions League, the VIP section expansion has taken place during the lockdown.
The new expansion, adding a further 600 seats to bring the section’s capacity up to 1,225 will officially be opened to the public at the crowning of Vipers Sc as the 2019/20 League Champions.
“We have installed more seats in the VIP area to accommodate more fans seated comfortably while enjoying football next season. Further to that, we are also refurbishing all areas that may have been damaged during the regular season as well as equipping the stadium with other equipment to ease operations as we look forward to football next season,” the stadium Manager Edward Junior Mulindwa said via Vipers Sc
