New Training Grounds Handed Over To Hearts Of Oak

Sports pitch experts, Green Grass Technology (GGT), last Saturday, handed over a newly constructed training grounds to Accra Hearts of Oak football club at Kpobiman, in the Greater Accra Region. The 100,000 dollar training grounds, which started last year through funding from Osam Petroleum, will now serve as the permanent training grounds for the club, after years of shuttling between national Lotteries Park, University of Ghana and the Accra Technical Training Centre (ATTC). Mr Frank Boahene, Chief Executive of GGT, who handed over the pitch to the Board of Directors of the club at a ceremony at Kpobiman, described the pitch as a quality one that meets international standards, a hallmark of his outfit. He said the new training pitch meets the required international standards because it was constructed with modern pitch construction technologies. According to Boahene, the club will however need to undertake regular maintenance to ensure that the pitch remains in the best of shapes. Mr Emmanuel M. Commodore-Mensah, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Club, said the club has come a long way in acquiring its own training grounds and described it a step towards achieving greater heights. He said this will bring an end to their long search for a permanent training ground and improve the performance of the playing body. Commodore-Mensah stated that, plans are in place to construct another training pitch on the vast land, which was acquired by the club about ten years ago.
