Parliament considers GFA’s stadium goal
The Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo, has reiterated the Government’s strong support for the Gibraltar Football Association as it pursues a site for the construction of a new national football stadium.
The issue was debated in Parliament last Friday as MPs questioned the viability of Lathbury Barracks as well as other potential sites across Gibraltar.
GSD MP Edwin Reyes initiated the discussion by asking the Government that given the apparent abandonment by the Gibraltar Football Association of the their plans to construct the stadium at the Europa playing fields site, what other alternative sites are being considered.

However, he also underscored that this is not a Gibraltar Government project but a GFA one.
