On Thursday, Minister for Education and Sport Clifton Grima took to Facebook to share that a whopping €3 million will be invested into Matthew Micallef St John stadium, which stadium will welcome a number of international Special Olympic Games in May.
Grima reported that the investment included the building of a brand new central stand and the improvement of facilities to an adequate level such as the restoration of all buildings and the provision of new office spaces for Athletics Malta officials. A ceiling for the warm-up track will provide shelter from any kind of weather, allowing athletes to use the track all year round.
The minister stated that such an investment allows Malta to welcome further sport tourism and when the project is finished, the stands will be able to welcome 3,000 spectators at once.
Do you look forward to the completion of the stadium?
