The Asaba Township Stadium in Delta state is getting set to host the 2018 CAA African Senior Athletics Championships.

The facility is under renovation and Chairman, Technical sub-committee, Yusuf Alli is excited at the pace of work.

“I am very impressed with what the Chairman of the Delta State Sports Commission Chief Tony Okowa is putting up here, if only I could roll back the years, it will be nice to also compete. I know the athletes will run faster times on this track and jump further in Asaba.

“The plan for the Asaba stadium is a masterpiece, we are having the first 100m both ways track in Nigeria, first of its kind and the stadium is also being built in such a way that the crowd will be close to the action; such electrifying atmosphere always brings out the best in athletes,” Alli noted.

The General Manager for the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon said he is sure that Asaba will be the benchmark for future athletics events on the continent.
