The development of the facility was approved at the monthly City Council meeting in 2013.
The Otjomuise multi-purpose sports and recreation complex, which was designed in 2010 comprises soccer, rugby, cricket fields, netball and basketball courts, an indoor sports hall, and sports accommodation for athletes, and many more.
The two multi-purpose football and rugby fields will consist a stands that can accommodate more than 2 000 spectators, a recreational area along the river, a netball court, cricket pitch, swimming pool, changing rooms, and hostels for visiting teams.
