The Raila Odinga Stadium, Homa Bay is a 20,000 seater capacity project that commenced back in 2014. The now complete phase one includes; a standard natural turf, a well-defined track, and three impressive floodlight masts. The stadium is fully equipped to host various local and international sporting events. Additionally, its spacious dais covered by a striking roofed canopy makes it a versatile venue for social gatherings. The National Government will partner with Homa Bay County to ensure the completion of the Sh369 million project.
