Long, long overdue. Be interesting to see the irrigation system and maintenance plan to keep that grass.

I think it's just an artist concept for the website, it never really comes out looking quite that way.

Where's all the money coming from for these projects? Sorry for asking if this has all been explained in other threads. The backside updated area is dtill not functioning as intended, is that correct? The road north must be hugely expensive and now this? Hey, I'm not against anything. It's that there's always been the complaint that Ambergris brought in the tourist dollars but the government barely apportioned any of it back to the island. Something has changed. Please educate me. TIA

Ground Breaking ceremony officially held for Ambergris Stadium

The long awaited groundbreaking ceremony of the Ambergris Stadium Renovation Project took place in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye on Friday, September 18th. The event marks the official commencement for the construction of a new sporting facility which will replace the old one. Estimated to cost around 2.3 million dollars, the project is being funded by the Government of Belize in its commitment with youth and sports. Upon completion, this new stadium will meet the needs of the sporting population on the island and will be equipped with a FIFA international standard pitch in order to host international games. The completion of the sport complex is expected to take between eight to ten months at the most. The project is being coordinated by Belize Infrastructure Limited (BIL) in collaboration with the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC), and executed by AM Construction Company from the Orange Walk District.

However, the magnitude of the project left a few questions in the air, such as its design and if it can be accomplished. “Every project needs to start with a design and as we go along amendments are done. But I think it is realistic and it will be accomplished and it is a project that I think the sporting community will push for so that it is completed, and the council will be stay behind it to guarantee its completion as well,” said Guerrero. The project was designed by a private architect firm without any involvement of the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC).

Guerrero also addressed concerns that a local island contractor is not building the facility. “I don’t think there is one contractor on the island that has the type of equipment needed to do this project. The mainland companies are bigger than the ones on the island, and I am not saying that the companies on the island cannot do the job, but they are not equipped to do this type of building. On the other hand, we also have other projects coming up which are part of the funds for this project. From the five million dollars, not only will the Ambergris Stadium be built, but we are looking to construct an enclosed prefab convention centre which will host events such as, volleyball, basketball and many other activities. So whatever funds are left over we need to find a way to use them in projects that will benefit the island,” said Guerrero. He reiterated that the SPTC will work along with BIL towards the satisfactory completion of the project.

So whatever funds are left over we need to find a way to use them in projects that will benefit the island,” stated Mayor Guerrero. The completion of the sport complex is expected to take between eight to ten months.
