A classy sports facility in Mantšonyane

MANTŠONYANE – The sports facility the Matekane Group of Companies (MGC) has built for the Bocheletsane combined school in Mantšonyane is in its own class in Lesotho and more is to come according to MGC marketing manager ‘Mamotake Matekane.
Matekane said the facility will fall exclusively under the control of the school and the nearby church but MGC will help with its maintenance.
She added that 5000 seats will soon be added to the ground to provide comfort for spectators when they attend sports events.

Although the facility belongs to the Bocheletsane School, football teams in the area will be able to use the facility.
Matekane said the school will decide how much it charges because that money will be its revenue.
For now only the football ground has been completed but an athletics track will be constructed while tennis, netball and basketball courts will be added as well.

“Everyone interested can meet the owners and hire the ground and use it,” Matekane said.
“We are yet to construct the athletics track which is where athletes will run. We are also going to add a tennis court, basketball court, netball court and 5000 chairs which will be at the football ground; we are also building showers there.”

“The seats for fans are still being made and very soon they will be ready. We will help maintain the ground and the hall because both will also generate income for the school and the church,” Matekane said.
The ground was used for the first time this past weekend for the MGC Soccer Spectacular final tournament which was part of the handover celebrations for the facility.
The four teams that participated in the finals shared the M400 000 prize money equally. On top of that, all eight teams that took part in the tournament, including the four sides that were eliminated in the first round, received M50 000 each.

Matlama won the MGC Soccer Spectacular by beating local side Lilala in the final and walked away with a trophy and gold medals.
The Bocheletsane football ground is comfortably one of the best in the country and is also built with long fences to stop the ball from falling into the nearby river that passes besides the school.
