Demolition on Ambergris Stadium starts early
Wednesday, July 15th, 2015
Pre-construction work has started on the Ambergris Stadium located in the San Pablo Area. Demolition on the existing structures started on Thursday, July 9th, and the ground work for the new facility that is to be built by the Belize Infrastructure Limited (BIL) has begun. The estimated $2 million project was initially scheduled to break ground by mid-August or early September, but work has started early. The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) is working closely with BIL to ensure the project is completed in a satisfactory manner.
According to BIL General Manager Christy Mastry, the project includes the installation of a grass pitch, bleachers to seat 800, locker facilities, concession stands, bathroom facilities and a storage unit. While the design for the stadium has already been finalized the project contract is in the stage of bidding by construction agents. Once the project is awarded to a construction agent, BIL will release the official design of the new Ambergris Stadium as well as the expected construction time frame.
Once completed the Ambergris Stadium will be the only proper football pitch on the island.
