He described the project as historic and expressed hope that the likes of Black Stars players including Nii Laryea, Godwin Attram and Ben Kai will emerge from the La community again for the nation.
According to him, the pitch is one of its kind in the country and pray for its maintenance to generate revenue for the area.
“This is a full-size artificial pitch. We don’t have more of such pitches in the country. If we maintain it well, other football clubs could pay for its use and it will generate revenue for us,” he stated.
The MP who is also a Deputy Minister for Communications said the project is timely and will facilitate sports development in the area whiles commending the McDan group for the gesture.
The new project when completed will replace the old La Park which has and continues to host the annual McDan Ga-Adangbe football competition and peace cup as well as key community events of the people of La.
The company is expected to extend the same project to Okponglo at East Legon soon.
