During their inspection, the team meticulously assessed the construction work to ensure that every aspect of the stadium’s refurbishment adhered to the highest quality standards. Their primary focus was on the structural integrity of the stadium, prioritizing the safety of athletes and spectators.
Furthermore, the team underscored the importance of providing athletes with world-class facilities that can significantly boost their performance and inspire upcoming generations to pursue sports.
