Via Metropolitana, more precisely in the Qingoma region, should be the City Group’s option to build the long-awaited new CT for Esporte Clube Bahia. The Bahia Notícias report found that the tricolor leadership made progress in negotiations with the state government and hands could be shaken very soon. BN anticipated this possibility at the beginning of January.
City’s research for the land has narrowed in recent weeks and the road that connects BA-526 to Linha Verde became an option that fits the following criteria: improvement in delegation travel logistics and proximity to athletes’ housing, commission technique and employees.
Despite this, the indication given by state management interlocutors is that the space is a “leftover” from what was expropriated for the creation of the Via Metropolitana and the Metropolitan Hospital. In recent meetings between the state government and the Tricolor command, it was established that Dias D’Ávila’s change would be a “requirement” of Grupo City.
To date, no request for licensing or feasibility consultation for the installation of the CT has been requested from the Department of the Environment and subordinate bodies, such as Inema. For the deal to be closed, environmental studies of the space must be completed. It is worth remembering that, in recent years, the region has undergone major construction, such as Via Metropolitana itself and the Hospital Metropolitano. These works led to protests from the quilombola community of Qingoma.
As Bahia gets closer and closer to a definition, more land possibilities are being offered. According to a source interviewed by the report, other locations remain under observation for a “plan B”, if necessary.
With the new CT ready, the professional men’s team and the Tricolor base will leave the CT Evaristo de Macedo, in Camaçari. At the moment, the idea is to leave the structure to the women’s team and initiation projects.
