Football's ways of development

Overviewteamupdatesworkspacecalendarfiles 

In the same way as the population distributed along the roads of KwaZulu Natal, it seems to us important not to limit intervention to a place, but to widen it to a territory: Somkhele. For the good distribution of informations (football, AIDS …), these have to join the habitants and so to invite them to go to the sports centre. The stadium is the brain of "satellites" spread along the roads which, besides an increased passage (pedestrians, transport), are the theater of commercial activities and so a big concentration of people. These satellites" (goals) are a data carrier (posters), but also of commercial activities (stands with table).
The pitch consists, at first , of three fields (for youngs and adults) and get organized according to a strategy of development following axes. The stands establish axes of growth, with on one side fields and the other one future development areas economic. These are allowed due to the equipped walls distributing main resources (water and electricity). So various activities will be able to come to link with these walls and develop. On the other side, covered parts can as indeed welcome associations (for meetings information) as supporters.
