Facilities will include a 1000-seater stand, a VIP area, washrooms for teams and spectators, changing rooms, and office complexes, among others.

A couple of months ago, Dr. Bawumia commissioned a sports complex, named Naa Sheriga Sports Complex, which he personally built in Nelerigu for the community and its environs.

The Akufo-Addo government has built over 150 astroturfs across the country, since assuming office in 2017, a clear departure from the situation it inherited, as Ghana had only two public astroturfs in Ghana prior to 2017.

The Gambaga Sports Complex will be the second astroturf and sports complex constructed by the government in the North East Region after a similar one was constructed in Walewale 4 years ago.
