Earlier this year, the CONCACAF’s stadium inspectors determined that the local FFB stadium in Belmopan did not meet the minimum standard requirements for the CONCACAF Champion League 2013; one of which was the lighting. Back then, FBB committed to upgrading the stadium and today took the first step in doing so. The FFB will be receiving much needed improvement to its lighting facility in Belmopan. Through partnership with Canchas Deportivas de Centro America from El Salvador and financed by FIFA at $298,000.00, the facility’s lighting system will receive much needed improvement. Contracts were signed this morning and the project is expected to be completed by the end of October, just in time for Belize to host the U-16 Central American tournament.
