In 2001, the Chinese Government committed $3,805,345.12 in grant funding for the refurbishment of the Mandela National Stadium. Through this project, the main athletics track was resealed and marked; tartan was laid on the training track that was previously tarmacked; a new multi-purpose scoreboard was fitted; a better public address system was fixed; and security lighting outside the stadium was repaired. On August 1, 2010, work began on the refurbishment of the stadium. The stadium was handed over to the Ugandan government on April 17, 2011.
This stadium was constructed with funding from the Chinese Government during the 1990s. The stadium that has a capacity of 45,202 people was completed in 1996 and handed over to the Ugandan government in 1997.
