Belfast City Council Stadium Plan Expenditure

Belfast City Council has approved further expenditure of £140,000 on a new business plan to examine building a regional stadium in Belfast.

It is reported that Belfast City Council has already spent in the region of £60,000 on the issue of a stadium in the city.

Two previous proposals for a stadium at Ormeau Park have been dismissed.

The new business plan will examine all potential sites in the Greater Belfast area as councillors continue to fight plans to have the stadium built on the site of the former Maze prison outside Lisburn City.
