(Ecofin Agency) - The consortium of Sogea-Satom (a subsidiary of VINCI Construction), Egis, Baudin-Châteauneuf, and Alcor, won a contract to design and construct a stadium in Yamoussoukro, Côte d'Ivoire, as the country will host the 2021 African Cup of Nations (CAN).

Apart from the construction, according to the agreement worth €72 million (CFA47.2 billion), the consortium will also renovate the playground, cloakrooms, and lightning of four training stadia near the city.

Designed by SCAU Architects, the new Yamoussoukro stadium will be able to accommodate 20, 000 spectators. A synthetic runway will surround the playground, in addition to jumping and throwing fields.

Sogea-Satom indicated in a statement that construction works will start this month and be completed by June 2020.

Let’s note that the organization of this event in Côte d’Ivoire requires 6 stadia. Therefore, in order to meet this requirement, the government has already launched in Dec. 2016 the construction of a new Olympic stadium (near Anyama town in Abidjan’s slum) which should be completed by the end of this year.  This facility is estimated at CFA97.5 billion (around €103 million) and contains 60, 000 places.

Furthermore, three stadia whose construction will soon commence will be built in San Pedro, Yamoussoukro, and Korhogo. Moreover, two existing stadia (Bouaké and Félix Houphouët-Boigny) will also be upgraded.
