Casilli dismantling Woodlands Stadium to it’s old appearance


Former City of Lusaka sponsor Diego Casilli has embarked on dismantling structures at Woodlands Stadium barely seven months after investing millions of dollars in refurbishing the facility.

The stadium became one of the best in the country after Forli Limited, which is owned by Casilli, invested about K50 million (US$5 million) in upgrading it.

Casilli has started pulling down the same structure just a week after announcing his withdrawal from sponsoring Division One side City of Lusaka.

Casilli consultant Simataa Simataa said Casilli stepped down due to the Football Association of Zambia making life difficult for him and continuous harassment and attacks by the community and the executive.

“Casilli is not happy with the position FAZ has taken by supporting the executive and also the continued harassment from the community,” Simataa said.

Last week, FAZ General Secretary Ponga Liwewe said they don’t recongnise the City of Lusaka PLC 2000 but would work with the executive .
