Windsor Park looks set for re-development

Thu 30th Sep 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Windsor Park, the home of Northern Irish international football looks set to get the go-ahead for a multi-million pound redevelopment.

According to BBC Newsline, Sports Minister Nelson McCausland is close to agreeing to a £110 million package with the proposal to be presented to the Stormont Culture, Arts and Leisure committee on today.

It’s understood that the recommendations will include a redeveloped Windsor Park with an increased capacity of 18,000.

The document anticipates that minister McCausland will provide a paper to the Stormont Executive next month recommending the redevelopment of the Belfast stadium.  The proposal includes proposals to re-develop two other stadiums including Casement Park and Ravenhill which are used for Gaelic Football and Rugby respectively.  

However, McCausland has yet to sign off on the plans which would then have to go before Finance Minister Sammy Wilson's department and ultimately be rubber stamped by the Northern Ireland Executive.

And the above, pre-supposes that the Irish FA will get its house in order and there remains the very real possibility that even if given approval, the Executive's spending review coming down the tracks could yet scupper the deal.
