Busia County Sports Chief Officer Joe Maurice Odundo wants the County Stadium relocated to the outskirts of the town.
Odundo said top on the agenda is to purchase land in Bugengi or Mundika before lobbying for funds from the National Government to construct a modern stadium.
Odundo is a former boxer and was at his peak during his high school days in late 1970s.
The Late Robert Napunyi Wangila who hailed from the county remains the only Kenyan boxer to win a gold medal at the Summer Olympic Games in 1988 in Seoul, South Korea.
This is after stopping his French opponent Laurent Boudouani in the final of their welterweight contest.
Ardent sports lovers remember with nostalgia in mid 1980s when Busia United Sports Club nearly caused an upset in the semifinals of the Moi Golden Cup before losing 2-1 to Gor Mahia .
Gor went ahead to clinch the Cup and represent the Country in the Africa Cup Winners Cup which they won after beating Esperance of Tunisia in the finals.
Added to that, many soccer stars including Victor Wanyama, MacDonald Mariga, Dr JJ Masiga, Wilberforce Mulamba, Noah Wanyama and Patrick “Amin” Omuse come from Busia County.
