BIL officially hands over Ambergis Stadium to the SPTC


The Belize Infrastructure Limited (BIL) has formally handed over the Ambergris stadium to the San Pedro Town Council, after it was inaugurated on Sunday, May 21 st. The stadium is presently managed by the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) and the specially created Ambergris Stadium Committee.
Councilor in charge of Culture, Youth, Sports and leisure activities Hector Alamilla explained the responsibility of the committee. “The Ambergis Stadium Committee is in charge of all the responsibilities and duties of the stadium, however the SPTC also helps when it comes to decision making, until someone professional takes up the task”. Alamilla indicated that a search for a professional manager of the stadium is under way. That person will manage the stadium along with the committee. “We don’t have anyone as yet,” said Alamilla, “we recently received the full documents for the stadium about three weeks ago.”
The Ambergris Stadium was designed to transform sports professionalism on the island. The construction cost for this sporting arena was around $4.4 million. The SPTC hopes that this new stadium will bring positive changes to the island.
