Accra Hearts of Oak’s Pobiman Academy Project will take off next week, Board Chairman for the club Togbe Afede XIV has confirmed.
The Ghana Premier League giant in the past few years has been making plans to construct the ultramodern Academy to raise the standards of the club.
Last year, the club made significant strides when it awarded the construction rights of the Project to Turkish firm Prefabex Yapi Teknolojiller San Ve Tic Limited.
Though the originally scheduled date for the start of the construction works has been postponed a few times, the club has finally made arrangements for the Project to take off next week.
“To become successful technically, we need infrastructures and that’s where Pobiman Academy Project comes in. We have done everything that we need to do for the Pobiman Academy Project to start. We have signed a contract with a Turkish company, Prefabex to build the structures for the Pobiman project”, Togbe Afede XIV said in an interview with GTV Sports Plus on Monday night.
He continued, “Prefabex are building the structures in Turkey and a local contractor has been tasked for the foundation under the Turkish company’s supervision. Works at the Pobiman Academy Project will commence next week. We will start digging the ground next week”.
After completion, the Pobiman Academy will boast of a staff residence, senior housing unit, gym, training centers, laundry, swimming pool, lockers, toilet facilities, kitchen, as well as a dining hall.
