A major supporter of Ethiopian football, Mohammed Hussein Al Amoudi has donated 100 million Birr (a little over $6 million) for the construction of Mekele Stadium in Ethiopia. 70 million Birr will be used for the construction of the stadium, which is currently underway.
The remaining 30 million is to be use for associated road construction. This is in addition to 20 million Birr previously donated. The money is expected to speed up the construction of a stadium that had lagged behind schedule due to lack of funds.
