Belize update


Belize has the most to be grateful for. Previously they did not have a paying field. Now they have a field with a FIFA pitch, stands were added that will accomidate about 5,000 spectations. There is a 6 foot fence in front of the fans to keep them off the field. Lights are also to be installed for night games. I am not sure if the lights are up yet. There is also building to house the national team, teach football to youngsters and to house the federation.

“The FIFA President then journeyed on to the capital Belmopan to open new facilities at the national FA’s headquarters and academy, where stands, dressing rooms and other public facilities have been built thanks to phase two of the country’s Goal Project. The ceremony began with an a capella rendition of the national anthem, after which Blatter cut the tape in the presence of Mr Chimilio and Rafael Salguero, a member of the FIFA and CONCACAF Executive Committees.” “We have our home of football thanks to FIFA and the completion of this Goal Project,” said Chimilio to an audience including several of the country’s leading sports personalities and political representatives”

This last picture is the housing and headquarters for training the national team. Location is Belmopan.
