Reform Sports West African, the construction company handling parts of the rehabilitation work at the Dan Anyiam Stadium Owerri, especially the turf has continued to attract kudos for a job well done.
The latest commendation came last weekend during the Match Day 2 of one of the 2020/21 NPFL games between Heartland FC and Nasarawa United at the Dan Anyiam Stadium Owerri, were match officials of the encounter (first League at the venue after 3 seasons) commended the good job of the construction company for producing a kept lush green turf which they described as enticing for a football game.
Recall that the administration of Rt Hon Emeka Ihedioha awarded the rehabilitation work at Heartland FC ancestral home and was retained by the “Shared Prosperity” government of Sen Hope Uzodinma promising that Heartland FC will play their 2021/21 NPFL season in the arena.
Although some part of the rehabilitation work is still ongoing but Reform Sports West Africa were lauded not just by the match officials but the away team’s Chairman, Barr Danladi who expressed delight that the nation still has such green lush turf that can equally host Super Eagles match.
Reacting to Trumpeta sports desk on the issue, the project site manager of Reform Sports WA, Mr Ifeanyi said their company is always committed to build the best sports edifice of the clients choice everywhere in Africa.

Meanwhile, Nasarawa United of Lafia last Sunday at the Dan Anyiam Stadium spoiled the return party of Heartland FC to their ancestral home when they became the first team to play against the Naze Millionaires at the rehabilitated arena and also beat them 1-2.
The match day 2 NPFL games which was played behind closed following the LMC COVID -19 regulations for the 2020/21 season saw goals from former Heartland FC player Chinedu Ohanachom and Adamu Hassan spoiled what should have been a return party for the Owerri landlords even.
