Repairs were being done under the Belize Infrastructure Limited but there is an issue with finances and the scope of the project.

Faber says that if the stakeholders can work together to locate funding, the original blueprint for the stadium can be realized.

“There have been major developments from where we once were and the project is moving. The issue has been that the largest of what was intended certainly could not be carried out. So now the plan that was there BIL conceived to have done it in a way that is it going to finish the project but not the specifications that it once used to be at. We were planning to finish it for use but there are persons, individuals, advocates who are insisting that it ought to be done to the largest that it was intended to be. So there are saying that we might be able to work together to find the monies to complete it to that extent. People can be assured that in fact that the project is moving forward.”
