Special Features Designed by OBE Architects, the renovated stadium is expected to become ‘European’ with the creation of fully covered auditorium and illuminated outer wrap. Very similar to the one in Uyo, Nigeria, the cladding would be made out of translucent diamond-shaped panels. By day they would be white, by night turning turquoise and this way completing the club’s blue and white colours.
