Axim Sports Stadium: 9-year old boy depicts significance of edifice

Two years of ago, a sod was cut on the indigenous red park in Axim for the construction of what will be the first ever Sports Stadium in the town.

The joy and the excitement of getting the ultramodern facility has made a 9-year old resident, Desmond Amonoo design a replica of the venue using Bamboo stick, Plywood, Paint, and Raffia palm.

Desmond, who is a student of Anglican in Axim, started the whole project with Plywood and a Raffia Palm, which was given to him by his father.

He told 3Sports “I started by getting a plywood, and then I made my father help me with Raffia Palm which I used to draw the shape of the stadium.

“When I finished with the first phase, my dad took a picture of it and sent it to the contractors working on the original edifice and they liked it and gave me access there anytime I visited.

“So, I went for the original plan from the contractors to speed up my work.

Desmond’s teacher, Francis Annan hailed his talent and called for support for him.

“Desmond is good at what he does

“He needs all the help.”


Contractors working on the Stadium disclosed to 3Sports that the venue will take a total of 5,000 spectators when completed.

Phase one of the venue is almost done. The second phase is expected to commence soon, official say.
