Description

On November 23, 2001, the Chinese Government and the Government of Cameroon signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the construction of the Yaoundé Multipurpose Sports Complex. The Chinese Government reportedly provided RMB 203 million (or $14.3 million) in grant funding for this project.The stadium was designed by China Aerospace Design and Research Institute and constructed by China Shanxi Construction Engineering (Group) Corporation. The 13,000 square meter stadium was built on 40,000 square meters of land. It is now used to host a variety of sporting and non-sporting events and holds up to 5,400 people. The project also involved the construction of a press room, a warm-up room, cocktail and vip rooms, dining rooms, an outdoor courtyard, and a parking lot. Construction was postponed at least twice due to difficulties with shipping materials from China into the port of Douala.Construction finally began on January 20, 2006. The project was ultimately completed on May 31, 2008, and the stadium was officially inaugurated on June 19, 2009.This project is linked to Project ID#31868, a 6.9 million RMB grant and Technical Assistance to Yaounde's Multipurpose Stadium Staff, and #31869, a donation of tools to help the maintenance of Yaounde's Multipurpose Stadium.
